Birds, Birds, Birds!

Seems I have caught the birdy-virus today I want to share another art journal card featuring one of our feathered friends ;)

To create this card I used some of the lovely Red Lead Bird masks and stamps, black archival ink, Brushos, some white gauze, DecoArt media Misters and Decou-Page, old dictionary page scraps and a cut in half postal stamp sticker.

I knew that the Brusho colours would re-activate once I was going to spread the sealant over the glued on bird shape, but I was hoping it might have some slight "aesthetical smudgeing" effect on the gauze...and got lucky. ;)

The bird's feet and outlines were drawn with a black china ink pen and the colour from the Misters was sprinkled on randomly.

Well, I am afraid (or should I say sure?) that this wasn't the last bird creation to be seen on my out for those birdies! ;)

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia xxx
