For The Birds

Pin It

Second post today...

Another Birthday Card...Can you ever have enough of them? I think

I combined two challenges for this card. At My Craft Spot the challenge is "For The Birds" (Make a project and include a bird) and at CropStop, the challenge is "Rainbow of Colors" (Use 4 different colors and shades of the same color do not count).

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Light Yellow/Orange, Pink, Green and Patterned Paper
Studio G i-cling Stamps, Bird
StazOn Black Ink
Sugarloaf Whispers Strokes Markers
Nicole Ultra Fine Premium Glitter, Extra Fine Multi Diamond Dust
Fiskars 3 in 1 Corner Punch
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Make A Wish, "Happy Bird-day!"
Black Pigment Ink
Queen and Co Pearls, Pearl 2 Small
Pink Ribbon
Mounting Tape
Black Sharpie

After I outlined the bird's body with the marker, I used a brush with water to "color" the inside of the body. After it was dry, I glittered the body and the tail. Using a Sharpie, I added the legs to the bird. I am happy the way it all came together. What do you think?

Today is a beautiful sunny (but cool) day here. I am going to try and get outside in my front garden and pull out the old sticks. It would be nice to see the daffs, hyacinths and crocus that are blooming without all the old dead stuff around them. Have a nice rest of the day...
