Good morning! Super excited to share a fun trio of cards I made with the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamp set - these crack me up every time, and I absolutely LOVE playing with them! Here is a quick peek at all 3 cards - and then I have close ups of each one below:
I also made this for a few challenges - first up, the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. This actually worked for two days - the birds were all done one day, and I added the coloring under them the next day!
Simon Says Monday Challenge - One Stamp, Many Ways (I one stamp SET for the images, and one for the sentiments):
Also linking up with the Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday Challenge - Spring (what is more spring than birds? Even when they look this silly!):
And finally, joining in with the Simon Say's Flickr Challenge - also Springtime/Easter:
Now - here are close ups of each one! I paired them up with sentiments from Simon Says Stamp's Inside and Out Sentiments - although I used all the sentiments on the front.
I used Jennifer Mcguire's technique of coloring with pigment ink for these images. Love how it worked!
I used some Memento Luxe ink in a couple different color combos, and just dipped my finger in, and smeared it around.
I then covered them with clear embossing powder and heat embossed for the same shine she had on her projects.
I fussy cut them out, and then paper pieced them onto my card base to make sure the legs and finer details showed up.
I re-stamped on white cardstock, and fussy cut out the eyes, then paper pieced those on so they were nice and clear and white - then covered them with a nice heavy and thick coat of Glossy Accents (then waited FOREVER for it to dry!) :)
Finally, I stamped my sentiments, then added some grounding under them with some Copic Markers (I actually did this the next day after everything had dried. Here are some close up pictures of each bird showing the texture from the embossing powder:
So cute and fun! These are quickly becoming a new favorite!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
