Crazy Birds - It's a Party!

Hi everybody!

My boyfriend's sister is one of those that have tons of friends, always surrounded by them and loves to have a good time, won't say no to a party.  I love that about her!  I thought this card would be perfect for her using the bird stamps, dies and accessories.  I made the background and am happy with how it turned out.  

The background is so simple and such a wow factor!  All I did was rub a few colors of Tim Holtz Distress Ink across my kraft mat (it wipes right off).  I laid my piece of watercolor paper on top of this ink and gently pressed all over.  I used a heat gun to dry it.  If you have areas of water, you can dab with a paper towel then use heat gun.  Then I put a little bit of water in my hand and trickled droplets onto the watercolor paper and let it sit a minute or so and dabbed it with a paper towel and that is where  you see the white areas, the spots.  

I colored the birds, hats, and present with Copics and a glitter pen and cut the birds out with the matching dies.  I fussy cut the hats and present because I don't have dies but I'm getting a Scan N' Cut around 10/9 and I'll try to cut the accessories out with this.  I'll do a blog post to let you know how this goes.  I added a few silver sequins to the out and insides. I used a Lawn Fawn stamp on the inside.  

I hope you like my card.  I love this set so much for men and for fun people!  Try some fun backgrounds, there's no right or wrong.
