Peek-A-Boo

Hi Everyone,

along time ago I bought those holes from Katzelkraft and I never got around to use them, tsk, tsk, tsk. The ostrich is fairly new. Those two are made for each other, I think....


I even took some pictures during the process, so you can see how it came about.

I first stamped the ostrich. I used a trip of washi tape to mask off the neck. I used a stamp positioner to stamp the ostrich into the hole


And then I colored the bird with my Inktense pencils.



The hole I colored with water colors.


Added the sentiment.


Trimmed off a bit from the bottom and added a strip of patterned paper.

Where else besides France can you get those stamps?

Well, Frantic Stamper and Topflight Stamps are your go to stores in the US.



Linking up with:

Stamp, Ink, Paper - card makers choice

and its almost a one layer card, just on little strip pf patterned paper at the bottom...

Verna Angerhofer said...

How fun! I just love this card. Sure to make someone feel uplifted too!

I am so enthralled with this card I don't even know what to say, Cornelia. She - and I say she because of the eyelashes ;) - is fantastic in her colorful feathers and peeking through the hole makes her fit perfectly with the sentiment.

Dayang, girl...that's one incredibly awesome card. Love those holes (sold out everywhere) and that beautifully colored ostrich. The expression on it's face is wonderful. Bobby's right, that sentiment is really perfect for this image.

Your little bird is too cute! Love the colors, perfectly designed! Thanks for joining us at Stamp Ink Paper, hope to see you again soon!

Flo said...

gut, dass dein Vogel Strauß seinen Kopf nicht in den Sand steckt, sondern rausgucken lässt. Sonst könnten wir ja nicht bewundern, wie toll du ihn koloriert hast. Auch das Loch, aus dem er schaut ist klasse!!!
Liebe Grüße

Anita in France said...

You made him come alive!! Brilliant, Cornelia ... your 'feather-work' on this fantastic ostrich is amazing ... positively touchable ... he's perfect popping his head up through the 'hole'. Hugs, Anita :)

Gerrittina van der Ziel said...

Sehr schöne Karte. Ich liebe den bunten Farben der Strauss!! Aber was meinst du mit "a strip of PP"?

SonjaK said...

Was für eine geniale Motivkombination! Die Stempel sind wirklich wie füreinander gemacht. Und ich bin total begeistert von der Koloration. Der Strauß sieht so toll aus in diesen schillernden Farben. Ich freue mich sehr, dass du mit dieser Karte wieder mal bei der Stempelküche-Challenge dabei bist.

Susanne Vargas said...

Wie dieser Regenbogenstrauss da aus dem Loch hervorguckt ist wirklich zu witzig! Ich habe auch schon seit Jahren so einen Lochstempel, ihn aber noch nie benützt!!! Danke für die Inspiration!

Tina Riddle said...

Wow! Gorgeous! I believe you are right that the ostrich was perfect for that hole! Such a great job coloring! Thanks so much for joining us at Stamp, Ink, Paper this week!

Gerrittina van der Ziel said...

PP = patterned paper. Ofcourse! Thanks Cornelia.

Anita in France said...

And there I was, Cornelia, thinking you were turning your hand to ostrich keeping!! After all, your card can portray any hobby ... card making included! As much fun and the first time I was here ... thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)
