Fireborn Inspiration

Today is the last day for entering the FaeryInk Facebook Challenge, so I pulled out my digis this morning and grabbed one to use. The challenge this month is creatures, so the image had to have a creature in it. I chose to use the gorgeous Amber Elegant Fowl for my card.

I took my colour inspiration from a book I finished last week, called Fireborn by Keri Arthur. She is one of my favourite authors and I love every series she writes. This book was about a phoenix spirit who could take on 3 different forms - a human, a fire spirit or a firebird. The colours of her flames in the book very much inspired the colours of my bird and the Fire Fae!
