Who would have thought that lime green and pinks would work as colours for crazy birds but they do. Made this for the challenge at Cards and Candles in progress – Wait? What? Doing something in an unexpected colour and to my mind crazy bird stamps are perfect for a challenge such as this.
Adhered a dark pink panel to card front and then a smaller stamped panel to that. I first coloured the smaller panel with oxide ink and then randomly stamped over the top in a darker colour using stamps I’ve had forever and with no idea who designed them or how I acquired them. Using some scrap cardstock I stamped crazy bird images using the smaller set of Tim Holtz stamps. I then die cut them with the corresponding set of dies. After colouring them using oxide inks I popped them up onto card front. I added the wings, eyes and beaks separately for additional dimension. Once I had them placed where I wanted them I stamped the hello in black and outlined it with a Sakura gelly roll pen. I also added some glossy accents to wings eyes and beaks for shine.
