I'm Sorry...Tim Holtz Crazy Birds card with Try It on Tuesday sketch

I had a chance to play with some challenges this weekend.  I was also playing with my brand new Time Holtz Bird Talk stamp and die set I just picked up at Michael's.  It was so much fun!  I made almost a dozen birds, so you will be seeing more than just this card.

Close up of my birds. On these I just used distress and stamp ink pens and a water color brush.  I touched up any bleed into the eyes with a white gel pen.
