Good morning! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards! Have you all seen those adorable Tim Holtz Crazy Bird stamps yet? If you haven't - you have missed out on a lot of cuteness!
Something about the little expressions on these birds make me laugh - I just adore them! I had a friend recently ask me to make a set of Nursery Wall art for her with them. It was going to be a shared boy and girl room for a little while, so she wanted them fairly neutral - no to specifically boy or girl. Here are photos of them - I didn't frame them, but just gave them to her so she could frame them how she wished. She has promised me photos when she has had a chance to do that - so I will make sure and share those when I receive them, but wanted to share them here now, since I happened to see that Vanessa still has one set of these in stock right now as I'm writing this - so run and grab it now if you don't have it yet!!!
I used sentiments from Paper Smooches Group Hugs - thought they were perfect for how these were going to be used for wall art! I stamped them on watercolor paper with Versafine Ink - my absolute FAVORITE for watercoloring! I used watercolor paints that I had on hand to color these - but am currently LOVING the Zig Clean Color Brush Pens - and they would be PERFECT for this! There is a fun selection of them in stock at the Butterfly Reflections Ink Store right now - you will definitely want to check those out! As a final finishing touch (hard to see in the photos of course!) - I used a bit of Glossy Accents on the eyes.
Thanks for stopping by today! I have a few close up pictures on my blog if you want a slightly closer look at these - in the meantime, have a wonderful day!!!
