Birds, Birds, Birds

Holly at Eat Cake Graphics sent each of her design team members these three little birds and asked us to come up with something using them.  I chose to have the three of them sitting on a wire (not too creative, I know... we all want to be brilliant when we do these tasks) but I wanted to do a CAS card with them.  It was easy enough to do... I simply lined the three images up on a block and stamped it and then after, drew a line with a .5 Copic Multiliner.  The names and links for the birds are 5078-D Little Birdie Standing Looking Down, 5079-C Little Birdie Sitting and 5080-C Little Birdie Lying Down.  The sentiment is one from Chocolate Baroque's Words of Wisdom set, the ribbon is Stampin' Up and the pearls are from my stash.  The birds were coloured with various shades of the light  Copic C markers and finally, I softly sponged in a little shading around the birds with Tim Holtz's Pumice Stone distress ink.  Of course, you will want to check out the Eat Cake Graphics Blog to see what the rest of the team came up with, using these little birds.
Challenges:
Bearly Mine - Lace, ribbon, twine

Beep Beep. :) This card is enchantingly dear Marilyn. The design is really cute and I love it. The shades of the birds are incredible. awww maybe you can (there in the top half) using Liquid Pearls, all tenderly ... it was just a thought (because you mentioned it yesterday)

Wish you a lovely day and thank your for visiting and commenting on my blog. I was very touched :)

Love, Dunja

Maybe not too creative, but really love it. So being brilliant is not always the best to achieve ;-)

Sandy said...

That is not exactly the way I heard it - May the Blue bird of happiness lay an egg in your beer! Do you see that firs bird really looking down and the second one is looking down too and the third one is saying - hey, I didn't do it!!
