Bluebird of Happiness...




















Surely you don't think that there could have been a greenbird of happiness or a brownbird of happiness. It HAD to be blue.

So here is my bluebird of happiness. This is an image from the canary stamp set from Starving Artistamps (by way of Red Castle). At club today, we had a long conversation about birds. Lots of people really don't like birds in real life, but who doesn't love them stamped?? That little bird from the Always set, the teeny cardinals, this lovely blue bird... Oh. Yes, I know the set name is "Canary", but really?

Doesn't it look like this gorgeous real life blue bird? IT'S CALLED ARTISTIC LICENSE, OKAY - STOP JUDGING ME!! :)

To make this card, I folded a standard size white card. I positioned my coluzzle near the top - leaving the top uncut for the fold of the card. I cut out a circle using the largest groove on the circle coluzzle. Then I cut out some Basic Grey paper with two smaller grooves of the coluzzle to make the accent ring. Then, since Copics bleed through my Whisper White cardstock, I cut even a smaller circle with my coluzzle for the bird image, which I stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black and colored with the copics. I then added a little frost on the limb with Stickles. I am sure that somewhere it is still winter, because it's certainly late spring/early summer here.


I'll post my camp projects at some point and give you the announcement - I'm not quite ready yet.
Hope you're having a good Saturday!
