The ostrich is a common bird in certain parts of South Africa, and so I thought this image would make for a fun card for my brother-in-law in South Africa.

The image is by Crissy Armstrong and is called Stretchy Ostrich.

I have coloured the image with Copics.

I began putting this card together with green papers, and then slowly swapped each one out with black and white, until they were all gone.  I'm pretty happy with the end result, because the image pops out now.

My papers are from an old Bo Bunny paper pack called Enchanted, and the sentiments are from a set of magazine freebie stamps.  I've added some bamboo string.

Thanks for popping in for a look today!
