What's the word, bird?

Our flight does not leave till 11.50pm tonight, and I'm all packed,

Yes, that's all I'm taking for 3 weeks!  I've been really frugal on what I've packed... and it's been a raining afternoon, so what better thing to do than to do some colouring....

 First up, a scrapling with PP and a card piece sitting on my desk.  The Tim Holtz bird was coloured with Mermaid Lagoon and Abandon Coral distress inks and fussy cut.  The sentiment comes from a Hero Arts set.  I stamped it, and then cut the sentiment up to fit on my mini card.  Inside it says "Happy Birthday, you old bird!"

Next up some Copic colouring, cut out with a Spellbinders oval. Sentiment from Rubbadubbadoo.  PP is from Kaisercraft.  Used a sketch I saw on Pinterest. 

and finally

The bird is coloured with Copics and fussy cut.  The sentiment is from a Dana Wakely set.  Once I stamped it, I used my Scor Pal to emboss lines down the card (hard to see in the photo) to give a bit of texture.  Finished with some green washi to ground my bird and a couple of punched notes.  

Off to change now... hard to dress in warm weather clothes (first stop Singapore) when it's wet and cooler here.

thanks for stopping by.

Those birds are just adorable. The sentiment from the last card is very fitting. Also your color is to die for and with the use of the patterned paper... Genius
