Well, today I was determined to put that right! I stamped and embossed him in black, then coloured in the bill with Promarkeers. While looking at images of toucans, I discovered that there are several different types of bill colouring, one of which is really funky but would have clashed with all my punched leaves, so I'll try that another time.
I used snippets to match the bill for the layering and a handful of green snippets for the punched Monstera leaves. I made some of them overlap the bottom of the toucan, as the image appears to be hovering in mid air with his wings folded, something I'm pretty sure toucans can't do. He needs a branch or creeper to sit on and there isn't one on the stamp. Stamping or drawing one in would require some pretty clever masking so I decided to simply cover the problem up instead!
The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
This has used up quite a lot from the snippets box, so it's very appropriate that I'm sharing it with Pixie's Snippets Playground
And ever since the 1960s when toucans used to feature in Guinness adverts, I've thought of them as very masculine birds, so this would make a great card for a man (especially an older Guinness lover!) so I'm sharing it with The Male Room where the current challenge is Anything Goes.
