Crazy Bird Father's Day card

Hi Everyone,

time to play with the Crazy Birds - I think they just lend themselves to be made into Father's Day cards....



I used watercolor paper and watercolors to color Mr. Crazy. Gave him a snazzy little bow-tie made with a YNS die, colored it, too and added glossy accents. Added the sentiment by Studio112 - I actually cut that sentiment out - I figured I'll never will use the stamp as it is anyhow and that was easier than masking it....

And did I mention the splatters?


Linking up with:

Cut it up  - Ties for Fathers Day
Colour me....! - my orange show up as red in the picture...
Friday Mashup - water color
Snippets Playground - use a snippet (bow tie) - probably the tiniest snippet ever ;)
Inkspirational - Purple ( as suggested by Carol)

Happy Stamping!

If you continue to showcase your Crazy Birds with this much style and panache, you're going to 'convince' me I need them! You're working magic with them! Mr. Bird looks mighty fine in his teal, orange and purple - the latter colour meaning you should bring him over to the Inkspirational gallery! He'd fit right in!

What a cute bird! I love the expression on his face, and his wings look like he has his hands on his hips. The splatters are perfect to fill up a little white space, and his tiny tie is adorable!

Thanks for joining us for our Ties for Father's Day challenge at Cut it Up!

Visiting from seeing your card entered at Cut It Up Ch72 Ties for Father's Day. The Tim Holtz bird looks great. The cut apart sentiment looks wonderful. I've cut many a stamp after getting over the first time I did it. I do not have the TH bird set. I started working on the TH Jun Tag. I have the base ready. Have the die and gathering materials to comoplete.
