I created this card for the Unity Stamps Be Inspired Challenge. I was inspired by the new Tim Holtz’ crazy birds stamps. Unity has this fabulous Swagger bird and I just modified it a bit. I used watercolor paper and I colored the background and the birds using distressed inks in Tumbled Glass, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Bundled Sage, Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn. I thought these colors matched the color challenge perfectly!
I added a bow tie to the top bird on the wire, and a small flower, I punched out of my leftover watercolor paper., to the girl bird on the ground, then I stamped “Sending happy thoughts” on another left over piece of paper and made it into a quote bubble. The birds and the sentiment are popped up for added dimension.
I placed the card in front of a watercolor painting I just finished and it looks like a good background for the birds.
If you haven’t see that post, here is the card again!
Thanks for coming to visit and have a great week!
