Colorful Pigeons

Colorful Pigeons

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner Design’s stamp set named, Pigeons. Normally, I stick with the typical colors of animals when I color but I'm personally not a fan of pigeons in general. I live in a big city and they are always around.


I googled to see if there were pigeons which aren't just grey or white and there are actually colorful pigeons. I decided to color the images in this stamp set using all the pigeons and I picked a different color for each. I also wanted to play with heavier shadows so I did use about 4 copic markers for each pigeon. Since they are all standing away from each, I didn't need to do any masking.


Once I colored them up, I added a sign for the sentiment because I didn't want it just floating since I did add "ground" underneath their feet. Although I don't love pigeons, I'm pretty happy with how this card came out! 



Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!
