That's Birdy Shoes by Stampotique. Isn't he just way too cute? I think he's extraordinary, especially when he's sporting some colorful plumage so he can stand out from the crowd.
He was stamped onto Neenah cardstock and onto a double layer of Eclipse Tape by Judikins, which were fussy cut to be used as masks. I stamped the birdy on the right, masked him, stamped the birdy in the middle, masked him, then stamped the last birdy on the left. The masks were kept in place while I colored in a floor for them. Then the masks were removed and all three birdies were colored in Toner Grey Copic markers.
An additional Birdy Shoes image was stamped, colored in orange, yellow, and violet to comply with the current challenge over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog. He was fussy cut, edged with a black pen, and put aside.
I found some seriously old black/grey patterned paper with a tiny triple dot pattern in my stash that worked really well matchy-matchywise (new word) with my greyscale birdies. This paper is by Keeping Memories Alive, which has been gone forever and a day. I hoard their papers because I find them useful.
The birdy trio was matted with grey cardstock, then layred onto the KMA paper using almost-as-old photo corner stickers by Scrapbook Adhesives. I hoard those too because they're useful. Sense a theme here?
I die-cut a piece of grey cardstock using an old 4x4 QuicKutz die and stamped the sentiment, from the Wise Words set by Rubber Soul/Wordsworth, using Onyx Black VersaMark ink onto it. I also die-cut an extra grey arrow and a black arrow and stacked all three of them, offsetting their arrowheads a bit. This gave the colorful Birdy Shoes birdy a nice raised perch. Colorful Birdy Shoes was adhered onto the stacked arrows using my beloved-and-hoarded black dimensional foam stickers by Scrapbook Adhesives.
