Karen N here. Today, I’m SO excited to be sharing with you several cards that I made with Tim Holtz Stamper Anonymous Bird Crazy stamps. LoVe, super LoVe these fun stamps! Have you seen ’em? Here’s a video that shows the cards I made.
The first two cards I made use paper from Heartfelt Creations Majestic Morning. On this card, I watercolored that quirky bird with Prima watercolor pencils, fussy cut him and then glued him onto a Spellbinders Label Four. I added a scallop border, some twine, a few pearls, and a doily (sorry, don’t know the brand name). All of these fabulous shapes were cut with my Big Shot. The inside of this funny card just says, “Sorry.” Love it!
In the next card, I stamped the bird onto the Majestic Morning paper. I also stamped him onto the green background paper and then fussy cut him out (cutting off his feet because they are on the background paper). I didn’t want his eyes to be yellow, so I added some googly eyes. The card is embellished with a doily and some flowers I stamped and die cut from the Birds and Blooms stamps and dies. I painted some Angel Craft Podge onto those fab flowers to add a little shine. The sentiment is a die from Lawn Fawn.
For the next two cards (yes, I went a little bird crazy here), I used Spellbinders Celebra’tions Prints and Solids. On this first one, I colored him up with Copic Markers and added some twine and sequins. I splashed a little glimmer mist onto the background. To make sure I didn’t splash the bird, I quickly fussy cut his image and masked him. I love the look on this bird’s face.
The final card I made for today post was also colored with Copics, but this time I colored his teeny little wing and tail feathers in a slightly different color. The sentiment is from a NEW-to-me set by JustRite called Handwritten Sentiments. How fabulous is that huge sentiment? That bird looks so sad, I thought it matched the sentiment perfectly.
Before I go, I wanted to mention that all of my images were stamped with the fabulous Spellbinders Celebra’tions Berry Black ink. This super great ink is good for both watercolor and alcohol ink coloring. I love the simplicity!
