Cool Birds!

It's Friday, which means it's time for another new challenge at the Outlawz Alcohol Marker Group! This week we're having an "Anything Goes with the option of creating a card for Christmas and/or any winter holiday!

This challenge is sponsored by Ditzie Digi Design, who will be awarding fabulous prizes at the end of the month!

You should go visit my teammates' blogs to check out what they created for this challenge. You can find links to Carla, Dawn, and Penny's blogs down there on the right side.  You should also play along with the challenge and share your project for a chance to win a prize from Ditzie Digi Design. They will be awarding three digis for first prize, two digis for second prize, and one digi for first!

Anyway, here's my card, featuring the bird trio from the You're So Tweet set by Kraftin' Kimmie! I took this photo with my iPhone*.

The bird trio from the You're So Tweet set by Kraftin' Kimmie was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Clear Gelly Glaze pen was added to their beaks and birdy feet. Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen was added to the snowy part of the branch and is very glittery and icy looking irl. The cloudy sky was added with my Copic markers in my usual way.

Very old two-sided die-cut patterned paper was layered and an aperture was die-cut for the stamped image. All edges were sponged with Golden Glitz Delicata ink. The golden shimmer of this ink is remarkably wondrous. If you haven't tried it, you should. And now there's a silver version that has the same amazing shimmer.

The sentiment was stamped onto one of the sheets from that pad, die-cut, and edged with the deliciously sparkly Golden Glitz Delicata ink.

*BTW, I took the photo with my iPhone and had an adventure. I took a video of the card, my project, my lamps, my desk, then my perplexed face. The photo is almost rubbish, so if the weather is good, I'll take a better one tomorrow with my real camera. By the way, the learning curve on my new toy makes me feel like a total moronicdweebtwit. Apparently you can't teach this old dog new tricks.

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall be entering this card in the following challenges!
