These new crazy looking birds from Tim Holtz are not normally my style, but I just could not resist them! There is just something about them that really appealed to me. Maybe because a few of them look how I feel most days!I stamped this little guy onto some Ranger water colour paper in Ranger Archival black ink. Then I coloured him using the gorgeous new Kuretake Japanese watercolour paints. I mixed in some Perfect Pearls powder and a little water into the paint to give it a real shimmer. Hard to see in the picture, but in real life it adds such a pretty shine to the image. I finished him off with a cute little die cut bow tie.
For the sentiment, I didn’t really have a pre-made one that I thought was suitable to go with the befuddled look on his face, so I created this one using Milo’s Alphabet stamps from Lawn Fawn. I love that this set comes with multiples of each letter so you can create your whole sentiment in one go and stamp it together.
To finish off the card, I just splattered a little of the paint onto the background using the same colours I had coloured the image with, and added a few gold Doodlebug sprinkles.
I then mounted him on some navy blue cardstock before mounting that with double sided tape onto some Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.
