Halloween Bird....

Someday soon I may get tired of these birds, not today!  I figure there are six birds - plus accessories - I could make a bird card for every person in my address book and never repeat a design!  LOL!   No, I promise, I will play with some other images! *giggle*

It is a new challenge at Aud Sentiments for a "Halloween Sentiment."  Doodle Pantry will be providing the prize and you can submit up to 5 entries!  You have one more week - deadline is Tues Oct 20.  I definitely encourage you to check out the projects the DT has created for you - some great ideas there!

  • Bird Crazy image from Tim Holtz..
  • Witches' hat, broom & pumpkin from the Tim Holtz' Bird Crazy Accessories. 
  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to give her dimension. Printed 2 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the images.  The layers were both glued in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • Inside made with left over papers from the front and from the die cut.
  • Die Cut web and sentiment frame is the 'Spooky Frame Set' from Memory Box and includes the bat image on the inside.

  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
