Crazy Bird Birthday

Hi there and thanks for stopping by.  Also, a warm welcome to my new followers.  Today is a quick post because I wanted to get this card posted before I forgot about it.  The card was for a birthday and has already been sent to the recipient... my memory is good but it's also short!
I tried smooshing again... I have a love-hate relationship with that technique!  I love the look but hate all the paper I waste because I'm never really happy with the splotches.  And of course, I stress that too much... it doesn't HAVE to be perfect and in fact, in can't be perfect so I need to relax about it.
I love this Crazy Bird set and can see it being a set I use over and over and over.  For the smooshing, I used Tim Holtz's Evergreen Bough and Scattered Straw.
Have a great week!

Well I think your smooshing is perfect - now if I look that technique up on line - will I find it. These crazy little birds are taking over the world and if I did not snack so much my tummy would be smaller!!

Not only do I love the Crazy Birds, I love snacks, which means I adore that sediment, and I love watercoloring, especially YOUR watercoloring here! Oh, and the doodled line, let's not forget the doodled line! I'm so loving, so pinning this card!! Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell
