Crazy Birds

I fell in love with the Crazy Birds stamps from Tim Holtz as soon as I saw them, so when they popped up on the Art From The Heart website they dropped straight into my basket. I had to make a quick card for my son this week and these hopped into my hand and said stamp me. I stamped the birds with Versafine Black Onyx and then cut the birds out with the scan and cut, then coloured them with Distress Markers. The background was made with Distress Ink pads, and the branches are from a Heartfelt Creations set - Birds and Blooms. I cut the branches down from the original size to short branches which suited the card better and then stuck them down. The words are from a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Chit Chat pad, I just added the question marks with a black fine liner pen and the "happy birthday" was created on the PC using a type font to match the chit chat.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated
