Phoenix




The bird that is reborn from the flames, symbol or rebirth renewal and the cleansing act of fire.   One day when I get my act together the right image the funds I will get a Phoenix tattoo, right shoulder I think.  For now I'll just have to play with my re-discovered Inkadinkado stamps and a flaming stencil.

First the stencil the shapes outlined with the shape end of a felt pen then coloured with the felt pens, the colours of Autumn and of flame.   Yellows oranges and reds.   Then the bird stamped in grey just to get the outline.   More of the same hot colours filling the entire impression.   I'd probably used this as a "Get Well" card.

Pixels and Paper (A new to me challenge) have a picture inspiration, It is the far left panel and the sleek style of the room that I took inspiration from.
Less is More have a colour challenge - Colours of Fire perfect for me, as is their CAS challenge
