Pine Grosbeak by the Chicken Wire

 I have great news to share today. I have been invited to join the Cheery Lynn Design Team. Of course I accepted as I am addicted to and love creating with the Cheery Lynn Designs. I am so excited . It also gives me an opportunity to work with all the  talented ladies on the Cheery Lynns design team.
So here is my first creation as a Design Team Member for  Cheery Lynn Designs  where the theme this week on the Cheery Lynn Challenge Blog is "Flowers"
I was so taken with the realistic details of the chicken wire that I choose it to work with and created around it. I applied a couple of colors of inka golds to the wire. Of course I had fun making an assortment of flowers following the theme.To me the sunflowers where a good choice to use as my focal point with the chicken wire.  I just kept adding things like flourishes, leaves, and  a garden gate creating lots of layers.  I stamped and colored a bird image with copics and tucked him into the mix. I love birds and hope he looks like a Pine Grosbeak that I tried to make him out to be. Oh and I can't forget to mention the cutest little bees that are from one of the new sets called Tiny Things with Wings.  That set is one of my favorites now and will get used lots and lots.
 I hope I have inspired you and  hope all you creative people out there will visit our Cheery Lynn Challenge Blog and enter your creations for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs.

This is truly a wonderful design, and I love everything about it! The wood patterned paper makes a perfect background, and I love the effect of the metallic shine of the chicken wire. Fantastic flowers and love the the detail of the die cut fence!
