Toucans of Love

I adore these birds, I looked Toucans  up on Google and oh the glorious colours they display, nature at it's finest. You really cannot go wrong when colouring them as they come in all shades just keep it bright! These two are from Doodle Pantry's digital stamp set 'Toucans of Love'.
The heads were made dimensional by double printing and colouring the image heads twice, cutting one  out and popping it up over the other  with dimensional tape. The background was heat embossed!

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge this week of Feb. 9th over at 'The Squirrel and the Fox' and the theme is 'love'.For some lovely inspiration stop by the Doodle Pantry Blog site and have a look.
