Crazy Birthday Bird


Hi everyone, back 2 days in a row - it works out like that sometimes. A big thank you and hello to a few new followers - I really appreciate you choosing to follow me and for all the lovely comments.

Have I mentioned I love these stamps - yes I may have once or twice! The theme at Try it on Tuesday today is 'Hats' - well I thought I would add a birthday hat to one of the crazy birds.

Pretty simple card really; stamped the bird, masked him off, stencilled around, water coloured the bird and added the hat and sentiment for a bit of dimension.

Colours used - cracked pistachio, scattered straw and peeled paint distress inks. Stamps - Tim Holtz Bird Crazy and Simple Sayings and Stencil - Tim Holtz Bubbles.


Have a great day and, as always, thanks for stopping by.
