Hey Bird Friend! for Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez

I'm posting today for Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez.  Patricia draws the cutest, most whimsical art, and I love to color it up and create cards with it.  She has animals, fairies, dragons, monsters, snowmen, all kinds of adorable characters.  It's definitely worth a trip to the Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez Store to see it all. 

Today, I'm showcasing a digi image called Magpie Thief.  Magpies are black and white -- a very striking bird -- but since I'm in spring mode, and I'm waiting anxiously to see the first bluebird where I live, I colored my Magpie Thief to look more like a bluebird:

He looks like a thief, with his mask on and his bag to hold all his treasures, doesn't he?

I colored Magpie Thief with Copic markers, then used a frame die from Craftin' Desert Divas to frame him with.  I found a challenge at The Outlawz for using damask, so I used this fleur de lis, or damask paper from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles as a background paper.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp, and is an acrylic stamp.

You can find my Kinda Cute inspiration in the Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez Facebook Group and on Instagram.

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Outlawz Thursday Twist -- Fleur de Lis (damask)
Dare 2 Be Artsy -- Animals
Not Just Cards -- ATG
Dragonfly Dreams -- add an animal
