Red, White and Blue - Just For You!

Hello and WELCOME!   It's time for our new challeng to be posted at SP & Company.   
I guess you already figured it out....   but it is
RED, White and Blue!   

This is a close up of the image I used.    Tina Wenke has a new release called Bird with Balloons.   
It can be found HERE.  I love this little guy.  He just looks so happy!   

I have three feather babies (along with two fur babies) and I have bird feeders around my entire patio.   I have tons and usually 13 - 18 turkeys come to visit as well.    I even have one little guy that looks in my bedroom window every morning (turkey - that is!  ) and if I don't pay attention to him or pretend to be asleep - he will  tap on the sliding gladd door with his beak.   This has been going on for two weeks now!     

My focal  image is  colored on Cryogen paper and I used Copic sketch markers and Prisma Colored Pencils  to color the image.   

Copics Used:  
Bird:  B69, B26, B24, B21, B02, B01, B000 and a sandwich of B69/E25/B69. YR0000, Y000, Y0000, W1  and Prisma Pencils Cool Grey, Miramarie, Blanc, and Periwinkle  
Balloon #1:  B000, B000, B01, B02, B52, B60
Balloon #2: Y000, Y00, Y02, Y14
Balloon #3: RV0000, RV000, RV00, RV02 and a sandwich RV02/C2/RV02
Flower: R24, R22, R20, R00, R000
