Hambo Stamps Pheasant

I have a new appreciation for pheasants...  I bet you didn't know that about me!

Our challenge for the Hambo Hoedown this week is to use the Hambo Stamps Pheasant you received in your e mail for playing along with last weeks challenge or any Hambo Stamps rubber or digital stamps and using the colors hot pink, aqua, lime green, bright yellow and or orange.  
Actually three of those colors will be good.

I had my image in advance and needed to think on it for awhile.  
Monday I "googled" pheasants, the first thing to come up was recipes...  
then I clicked images and then I had to read and learn more about them.  
Next step was coloring with Copic markers, 
I wasn't sure I could do this beautiful bird justice but I tried.  
Here are the Copic markers I used:

B0000, B01
E50, E53
BG11, BG13, YG13
YG01, YG13, R14, R24
E23, YR23, Y35, Y32, V01, R24, R35, R46

The colors I used for this Hambo Hoedown challenge are Aqua, Lime Green & Bright Yellow as well as a mixture of some of the others.  
The hot pink just didn't feel right to me so I didn't use any.

I hope you'll dance on over to the Hambo Hoedown and see all the Pheasant inspiration for our challenge this week and answer the call of the challenge.
