Crazy Bird

Good morning everyone!

It’s my turn today on the blog and I’ve got a fun card to share with you.  This month Kat released a great new die called the Wood Grain Framed Diamond Wire and it really is a unique die that can be used in so many different ways.  Make sure to check out the other projects by the DT members to see how they have used this fun die.

Today I decided to use the die as an interesting background and a place to showcase my crazy bird and computer generated sentiment.

I started by stamping my Tim Holtz Crazy Bird on to some watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx black ink and coloring him with 2 colors of distress ink.  I rubbed some Squeezed Lemonade and Peacock Feathers on to an acrylic block and I used my water brush to pick up the ink and color my bird.

After I was happy with the results I hand cut him out and put him aside to dry.

Next I die cut the Wood Grain Framed Diamond Wire die out of some black cardstock and adhered a piece of black striped patterned paper behind it.  I really love the look of the wire die over the striped paper.  It adds to the “crazy” look on the birds face.

I glued the wire die with the patterned paper to an A2 sized white card base with some

Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

For this card I wanted to add a sentiment with a crazy font so I generated a sentiment from my computer and hand cut it out.  I trimmed down the words into 6 different strips and inked the edges of each strip with some Black Soot distress ink.

The only thing left to do was to pop up my bird and sentiment strips up on some foam tape.

I love how this card turned out and the Wood Grain Framed Diamond Wire die

gives it such a unique look.
