Another bird-day card

Hello Everyone,

Happy Monday! This means it is time for another inspirational post for the current Inky Paws Challenge #54 Polka dots. I just love this theme, so many ideas are floating around in my head. If only I had enough time to make a card from all of them.

This time I played with patterned papers, all with Polka dots. I had a sketch in my head and I knew I wanted to make a funny birthday card with those gorgeous birds from the NND Toucan Party set. I stamped 3 of them on a piece of Copic friendly paper and made masks for all of them. Then I masked them off and stamped the branches. I also applied a bit of Tumbled glass distress ink with a stencil brush in the background.

After removing the masks I coloured the toucans with Copic markers. I added glossy accent and some Spectrum Noir clear shimmer to some parts for more interest.

I die cut the word Bird-day from patterned paper (Neat and Tangled Journaling Alpha die) and adhered it to the panel. I stamped happy above it from a Neat and Tangled set (Cottontail Cuties).

For the theme I added blue polka dot patterned paper on the left side of the card and a thin strip of black and white polka dot paper for the contrast.

Some google eyes finished off this funny card.
