Crazy Birds

These bird stamps can be used for all sorts of cards and this time I've combined two of them along with suitable words.  Stamped onto white card stock and coloured with pencils.  A 'brick wall' was embossed and sponged and some rectangular dies used to cut out the image.  The main part of the wording was stamped onto the bird plaque (using the Misti of course) and the second part of the phrase stamped onto some white card and cut into a banner.  The simple addition of a die cut feather completes this quirky card.  I stamped and coloured a couple more of the birds so the next job is to make something different with them. before they find their way into 'snippets storage'.

Background Paper - magazine freebie (good quality one)
Birds - Crazy Bird stamps - Tim Holtz
Brick Wall - Tim Holtz embossing folder
Feather - die from The Works
Wording - stamps from a magazine freebie set (from really way back)
