Bird Crazy Celebrate

I really enjoyed making this card. To me this crazy little bird looks like he is wearing a tuxedo; wherefore he was perfect for a celebration themed card.

I stamped the bird as well as the top hat and bow tie on watercolor paper and coloured all using SU inks and an aqua painter. Then the pieces were cut out using the matching dies.

The assembled bird was matted on an oval cut out and I add a little shading below him for a shadow effect.  The card front is very dark navy cardstock onto which I stamped a crackle background in pearlescent white.

For my finishing touches I couldn't resist and had to add a bit of sparkly thread and sequins
Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill (coloured), Recollections white, SU - watercolour paper
Stamps: Crackle Background - IO, Wonderful Words - SU, Bird Crazy, Crazy Things - Tim Holtz
Ink: SU - Night of Navy, Basic Black, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, Real Red, Club Scrap - Pearlescent white
Dies: Bird Crazy, Crazy Things - Tim Holtz, Oval Thinlits - SU
Misc.: silver sequins, red/black/silver specialty yarn
