While I intended to give "Tiki" the full blown Halloween treatment I decided to highlight the image using a strictly black and white background and the colorful spotlight. Kind of like the B and W photos that have one element colorized.








This cute toucan comes from Paperworks Co.
Supplies used to create this card include:


Spellbinders frame and palm fronds
Copic airbrush and markers
Prismacolor pencils/Gamsol
Stickles
Black gems
Black fun fibers
Sizzix flourish die
Prima flowers


Thanks for taking a look and see you next week!

  6. Holly your work always intrigues me. I loe that you used a monochromatic color scheme for the background and embellishments and the bright tropical colors for the Toucan. It makes for a fabulous card. Love that marvelous glitter.
