When I was colouring in my Pirate Parrot Bombshell the other week I remembered those spinners where you have an empty cage on one side and a parrot on the other. When you spin the spinner the parrot magically appears in the cage!!
So for world card Day here's my version of a Spinner card or 'Put the Parrot in the Cage'!!
Here's a tutorial for the card and spinner- click on the images to see a bigger version....
And here it is in action!!!
