Crazy Birds Again.....


Hi Everyone,

if you were expecting a card I have to disappoint you - made a little piece of "art" here on canvas with my favorite birds....


First I gessoed, then I stamped the bird, masked it and spritzed with Dylusion spray. Colored the bird, stamped some more - all other stamps besides the crazy bird are by  Ryn Tanaka - her stamps and those birds just go so well together!


Added black splatters and finished it off with varnish. The whole project took a while - stuff needs to dry in between those steps.

and here he is again - Mr. Dapper - I love him!


Edited for more info:
Its tricky to stamp on canvas, because of the give - I put the stamp on the table and put the canvas on it and then rubbed my fingers onto the stamp (through the canvas). You have to watch out and not shift anything. I gessoed the canvas first. I used Dylusion ink sprays for the background and probably distress inks and some Copics to color the bird - can't quite remember....has been too long...

Linking up with:

Cornelian, this is an absolute joy, saw it on my reader and had to pop by and tell how fabulous this is. So very creative and so much fun. I am loving your creations at the moment...they are always fab but recently I think you have made such amazing projects. And I see you have entered Ink again...happy dance x

Just gorgeous, Cornelia. I tried to get hold of these fun crazy birds at SSS (at 30% off) this weekend, but they were still out of stock..

This canvas is just superb Cornelia! Nice to see you NOT making a card...and absolutely gorgeous colors! :)

Julie Steed said...

This is wonderful! Now I'm tempted to buy the birds after seeing what you've done. Love the background colors you chose, too.

And what a handsome fellow he is...I can't get enough of these birds either, so I totally understand the obsession with them. What I want to know is how you got those awesome drips to look so fabulous...need a tutorial (Pleeeeez). Thought if I whined enough you just might do one.

conil said...

Thanks for the tip on the embossed butterfly. There's still time to fix it, yippee! As for the tutorial (where have I heard that before?), I'm patient. It's not like I don't have other things to do in the meantime. Thanks again.

Hey Cornelia, neat canvas! Like the crazy birds with my water designs. You're right, they do work well together :) Liked reading about your creation process too! Many thanks for sharing :)

When I tried stamping onto a canvas I couldn't get a good impression, so great work here. Love the richness of colour and the bird is cute. Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational Challenges. Come back next time! Marina

Ngaire Ashdown said...

Hi, my little craft group would love to make these crazy bird canvases. Did you do anything special to stamp the image on the canvas?
What ink did you use?
I'm thinking the canvas will have some "give" in it and maybe won't stamp well.
Your work is lovely and I'll be sharing your web site link to the girls, too.
Cheers
Ngaire

Hi Ngaire, - perhaps you come back here - I can't find you and you are a "no-reply blogger"... Its tricky to stamp on canvas, because of the give - I put the stamp on the table and put the canvas on it and then rubbed my fingers onto the stamp (through the canvas). You have to watch out and not shift anything. I gessoed the canvas first. I used Dylusion ink sprays for the background and probably distress inks and some Copics to color the bird - can't quite remember.....hopefully you'll see this message. Hugs. Cornelia
