On day 8 of the class, the amazing Shari Caroll used this little bird image to make a card and I fell in love with it. I had colored several of these little guys but didn't quite know what to do with him. I couldn't help but to borrow her idea/layout for this little fellow.
I used the Leaves Stencil from Simon Says Stamp to create my foliage for my background. With a dauber I lightly inked it with Pear and Sunny Yellow ink. The sentiment is from the Card Chatter-Sympathy stamp set (retired). I stamped it on a scrap piece of Neenah Desert Storm card stock with Versamark ink and used Ranger Super Fine white embossing powder to heat emboss it. I didn't have any solid colored twine, so I took the Lagoon Baker's Twine from CTMH and separated the blue from the white threads. Voila! Lagoon thread. I fussy cut my little bird out and mounted him and my little banner, which I hand cut as well, to the front of my card face. I added a few sequins from the Fall assortment from SSS and that was it.
I still have a few more birds left in all different colors. I have a feeling you might be seeing more birds like this in the future :) That's all for me tonight. Thanks for stopping by!
