Happy Bird-Day


I love seeing birds on the high lines. I also like the pictures of similar scenes. I decided to try to recreate that look on a card - with some help from Eyelet Outlet.

With the fun sentiment I was able to create a birthday card with just a few simple steps.

I started with a piece of 120# White Cardstock and used the Heffy Doodle Cloudy Skies stencil to create the clouds. Then I used a Fine Line Copic Marker to add the high lines. From there it was just a matter of deciding which Eyelet Outlet bird brads to use and where to place them.

The sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Toucan Can Do It stamp set.

Eyelet Outlet Products:

Cardinal Brad

Cardinal Profile Brad

Eagle Brad

Robin Brad

Bling Strip

I wonder if it is possible to add black embossing powder to the birds to transform them into silhouette birds. I might have to experiment with that at some point.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
