Bird Crazy Flip Frame

Hello -

I’m popping in late tonight with a new insert for the Tim Holtz Flip Frame. I used the extra fluffy bird from the Bird Crazy stamp set as the main focal point. I picked up the coordinating Bird Crazy Thinlits die set which made cutting out the bird fast and easy.

After stamping I water colored with the Sakura Koi Watercolors. I always seem to go back to this medium when I want to add a quick wash of color.

For the background I stamped a piece of watercolor paper with the zig zag stamp from Zig Zag & Diamonds Backgrounds set in Clear Emboss It! ink and heat set with white embossing powder. I then sponged a bit several colors of Distress Ink here and there to color the non-embossed portions of the background.

Once the pieces were finished it was just a matter of assembling everything together with lots of glue and foam tape and a few favorite embellishments: mirrored starts, jute, and a sentiment flag.
