...uh-oh! It has happened! Yes, I have succumbed to the lure of the Crazy Birds! Last week I spent a couple of days at the NEC on the Craft Obsessions stand having a ball playing with all things Distress, Gelato's and Tim stamps and stencils. Thank you to all who popped by to see me, it was lovely to put names to faces and to see your enthusiasm for all things inky and messy too. Also a big thank you to Brenda and David for putting up with me too! So. These birds. They have accessories! So you can dress them up! All of a sudden I "got" them... I mean, come on, who wouldn't want to put bunny ears on a bird right? Anyways, here are two of the samples I made during the show... First up is Mr Painter Bird and his mate who is looking rather jealous of Painter's rather splendid brush in his chops. This was dead easy to make... Spritz Distress Spray onto card, blow like billio *yes, I nearly hyperventilated* dry, spritz another colour, repeat with the blow like billio *stop for much needed oxygen hit* and then stamp, die cut and colour all the components. The brush is just soooo cute isn't it? Well, Brenda saw this sample and said... you could use the bristles to make a moustache! Hey! What a grand idea!!!
However, with this second card I got thoroughly carried away and instead of a moustache... he has... a flat top!!! This little fella is all about the Gelato's. The background is Gelato blending through a few stencils and he is painted in with them... check out his jazzy bow tie too... that's using the metallic Gelato's.
Right, that's me for today... I am about to set off to Preston for my class tomorrow at Inspirations... I am not looking forward to the M6..... hope it isn't toooooo busy! Ha, who am I kidding!!! Thanks for looking and have a great day! TTFN
