Tim Holtz Crazy Birds

Morning crafters

Midweek already. Where does the time go

Guess what I'm sharing today?... Yes. .more crazy bird makes lol! These stamps are soo cute, fun to play with a soo versatile.

For this card I created a water colour background using distress inks. I used the same inks to colour a scalloped frame (by Julie Hickey. Julie Loves. ... )

A wiggly frame was made around the card blank with a fine line pen

I stamped the sentiments using Versafine black onyx ink 

Two birds were stamped onto a piece of card in black onyx versafine and then coloured in with Kuretake clean colour pens.  

I cut them out and attached them to card blank with foam pads.

For my second card I also created a watercolour background. As this was on a deckle textured card blank it created a completely different effect to my first card

I drew a line across the card blank with a fine line pen

The birds and sentiment were then stamped in versafine black onyx ink to complete.

Hope you like these simple but fun cards
