Hi everyone, I played around with my Tim Holtz Crazy bird stamps and dies for this hop.  I went wild playing with my Distress Oxide inks.  I used layer techniques and even a water brush to color my birds.

I stamped the image a few times cutting the nose and eyes out independently.  I didn't have to worry about coloring (or lack of color) on the eyes since I put a fresh pair on top after inking the body.

I gave this one to my friend for his birthday already.

You can't see how beautiful these cobalt sequins are, they were recycled.  I think they may have been from a sequin blouse.

I used some unusual sequins I purchased overseas.
