My card was inspired by a National Geographic special about the birds of the rain forest. As I watched it, I was joined by a feline friend, who got very involved with the show.
Here's my card with the cockatoo from Stampotique's Birdy Up (Kira Nichols) and Happy Bird-Day (Carol's Collection) .
Here's the photo of Flash, our Tuxedo cat watching the Nature special.
Black cardstock was die-cut with two of the dies from the Card Creator Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders) to form the frame of the television. A small rectangle was also die-cut to become the base of the television set. Blue cardstock was die-cut to become the television screen and rope-patterned Washi tape (Little B) was added for a perch. The fussy-cut birds were adhered to the blue cardstock, which was then placed behind the frame. I would have added an acrylic overlay, but I wasn't feeling up to the challenge of getting a decent photo of a highly reflective surface.
Vellum was cut and adhered to a card base. Black cardstock was die-cut with my Curious Cat die (Poppy Stamps). White Pitt Artist pen was used to add white socks, nose, and chest to the cat die-cut. Green glitter pen (Sakura) was used to add the eye to the cat!
The TV set was adhered to the card front and the detailed cat die-cut was added to create teh scene.
Happy Bird-Day was stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink (Imagine Crafts) onto vellum. The sentiment was cut apart and adhered to the card front. All the vellum bits were outlined with a Grey Multi-liner (Copic) to make them stand out a bit more.
I had added a sparkly green circle to the lower left of the television to become the on/off sensor, but it seems to have gone missing. Bummer.
Thanks for visiting today!
