C4C305: A very BLUE bird

Hello! It is late at night but that is okay since it is the weekend! And since I defeated the cold/allergy monster, this weekend is going to be so much greater than last weekend. To kick start the fun I made a card for the latest challenge from Crazy 4 Challenges: show me the BLUE. You can find all of the details on the challenge and some fabulous samples HERE.


It has been a while since I used one of the feathery crazies from CMS212 – Bird Crazy so I picked one of my favorites and colored him blue with Copic Markers. I added Glossy Accents to his eyes to give him a super glassy-eyed look.


For the background I colored a piece of watercolor paper with Sakura Koi Watercolors. Once dry the panel was cut with a stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn. I also cut out another panel from white cardstock using a stitched circle die.

For the sentiment I used a stamp from CMS155 – Simple Sayings and heat embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock. I added a panel of designer paper from Doodlebug to a white cardstock and then adhered the various pieces to the card base using foam tape. I finished with some white enamel dots and a couple of sequins. I think I achieved this week’s challenge. ;)
