Crazy Birds - Yayyyy! 1 in July - CHECK VINTAGE STAMPING

OMW it has taken me ages to get hold of this set of stamps.  They turned up yesterday and a few hours passed until I could bring myself to use them.  As you can see I did.  Took me gaes to achieve the effect I wanted.  How is it that something so simple can demand a lot of thought with the coloring/shading.

I decided to stick with copics, after trying Distress inks with water, pencils and artiste pens.  So I colored the birds, fussy cut them (cut of the little quiffs and legs off) and put them to one side while I used DI for the background - rather random.  I have to say the birdies were not happy being legless and quiffless.  I used a sentiment by Dylusions - love this saying.  I then stamped the images again, stuck the images over the top onto the card so my birdies could get their legs and quiffs back lol.  I used a black charcoal to give the biries a little grounding rather than looking as they up in the air lol.

That's it all done.  Now for the pics.....

Legless birdies

The birdies have been reunited with their legs and you would think they would look happier about it wouldn't you?

I do hope you liked being in my little crafty corner - I enjoy you visiting that's for sure.

Hugz and love always
