Blue Bird

Over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday we have a new ANYTHING GOES challenge for you, no twist this week, really simple. Our sponsor for July is Sami Stamps.
I used an image from a Tim Holtz stamp set for my card. He looks sick poor  thing, all blue in his face. I had a piece of paper I had added different blue inks to and I stamped on this paper, heat embossing with black EP. I stamped his eyes on white paper, cut them out and mounted them on foam. I used a white die cut memory Box heart and a die cut LawnFawn panel with Kaisercraft DP and I spritzed the kraft paper with blue jeans colored mist. The sentiment, from Technique Tuesday, is heat embossed with silver EP and I added three sequins.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) TIME OUT Challenges - #36 CASE Alice
2) Inkspirational - Kraft
3) Glitter n Sparkle - #147 Starts with a B (Bird, Blue)

He seems as a bird rejected in love, with this big heart with crossed stitching and the background that looks as a closed door.
...Poor bird, he need sure some hugs. :)
The eyes pop out so well and love the neutral colours with different blue!
Hugs also to you! :D

Lisa Minckler said...

How does that old saying go? "May the bluebird of happiness fly up your nose?" Is that right? I sort of get it, but then again, I totally don't. I do however get your card and I LOVE IT!! He's precious and completely worthy of many hugs and judging by his size, I'd prefer he steer clear of my nose...preferably...LOL!
HUGS and Happy weekend!!!

Pia, I love those Tim Holtz's birds and the die cuts are wonderful. Great job with the coloring and the sentiment is perfect because he looks like he needs a hug. Nice layout.

This is such a fantastic CASE of Alice's card and I just love those Tim Holtz birds, they are hilarious!! I think the blue colouring looks fabulous and love the layered white heart on the woodgrain. So very glad you joined us at TIME OUT!

Janet McLaughlin said...

I love these birds! Great design and perfect sentiment!

MaryH said...

Aren't these CB guys just goofy & cute? Like him in blue. There's a die set available. Found it after I got the stamp set and 'think' I've got it backordered somewhere! Like the eyes detail, and like that you did him in blues. Love the shapes & layers little sicko CB is perched against. He is bound to feel better with such a pretty background. TFS
