A sweet friend of mine had a birthday last week. And I knew it was coming. And then I watched it go! Well that's no good. I knew I had to make my friend a birthday card. So I got out my crazy birds-because they are always great inspiration within themselves, and I set off to work!
So here's my card:
The background is cracked pistachio distress oxide with a tim holtz stencil. And for the bird I used wilted violet (oxided di) as a watercolor. So I put some on my mat and spritz with water. Then I used a paintbrush to paint the bird. I did the same thing for the balloon using worn lipstick.
Since I am going to enter this into the challenge at Seize the Birthday I had to take this card up a notch. LOL :) I added a white string and a bow on the balloon.
Thank you for stopping by today! Until next time my friends-have a happy day! :)
