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 the photo that inspired the parrot on the card.

Agatha's Parrot was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts), colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and edged with a Black Pitt Artist pen (Faber Castell). Agatha's Parrot was set aside while I created the other elements.

Black, silver, and white cardstock were die-cut with the TV Shaker dies (Simon Says Stamp). Green cardstock was die-cut with a Foliage Corner die, then detailed with a VersaMarker pen (Imagine Crafts).

The leaves were adhered to blue cardstock, then Agatha's Parrot was adhered. The TV Shaker dies were assembled.

Black cardstock was die-cut with the Happy, Birthday, Merry, Christmas Small Words die set (All Occasions), the "s" from the Small Alphabet die set (All Occasions), and the Large Pouncing Cat die (Poppy Stamps).

The Large Pouncing Cat die-cut was detailed with a White Pitt Artist pen and a Green Stardust Glitter pen (Sakura).

Wood-patterned Washi tape was adhered to a piece of subtly patterned cardstock (Graphic 45) and the die-cut sentiment was adhered. For the Birds (Janet Klein) was stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink (Imagine Crafts) on the Washi tape.

White vellum was die-cut with a small rectangle from the A2 Card Creator Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders), then adhered to the card front. The television and antenna were adhered. The card was edged with Black Soot Distress ink then adhered to a white card.

I don't know if I'll do any more of this series, so I figured I'd let you see some more of this series of photographs. I took a lot of photos of Flash with the tv birds in between fits of giggles as it was such a funny thing to watch. The best part was when he looked behind the television to see if more birds were hiding there.

Thanks for visiting today!
