Crazy Birds in unusual colours

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.
