FCCB Challenge # 203 Bye Bye Birdie

For this weeks challenge create a project with a bird. Spring is fast approaching and the birds are everywhere. I was looking out my window while I was making this card and the yard was full of birds. Lots of inspiration! I used  Cricut cartridge Happly Ever After for my bird cut.

 For my sentiment I heat embossed Happy Birthday with silver embossing powder.  I made my background paper using watercolor paper. I used my craft mat to create this effect. First I used watercolor markers in green and blue. I just scribbled a few lines of the color onto the mat then sprayed it with water.  I then put the paper into the wet color, when I lifted the paper this was the results. I think it looks like grass and sky with maybe a few clouds. I used brown twine for my branch. The bird is on pop-dots for dimension and I added a black flat back pearl for his eye. I actually used some pieces of coordinating scraps of paper to piece him together. For the final touch I added a button from my stash.

Our sponsor for this week is The Robin's Nest.

 So play along and create a project with a bird. Don't forget to use a Cricut cut on your creation then link it to our challenge at FCCB.

Thanks for looking and good luck
