I have seen several versions of this bird flying around blogland so I decided to have a go.
I think some of the best items in the Stampin' Up! catalogue are the punches. They are excellent quality, co-ordinate with some of the stamp sets, and, best of all, they punch through card.
The punches I have used are;
Boho Blossoms (eyelashes, hair, crown, feet)
Two-Step Bird (wings)
1 3/8" Circle (tummy, head)
3/4" Circle (eyes)
1/2" Circle (eyes)
1/4" Circle (eyes, sadly now retired)
The colours are Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Basic Black. I sponged around the edges of the punched pieces with the same colour of ink to give some depth and the strips of black for the hair and legs were put through the crimper. Adding highlights with a white gel pen makes all the difference!
Take care until next time ...
