Birdie Birthday

Supplies: Stamps Mini Crazy Bird Set  Ink: Archival jet black, Versamark, Distress Inks: barn door, peacock feathers, and pumice stone  Paper: Tim Holtz watercolor paper, black cardstock by Gina K Accessories: detail white embossing powder, glossy accents, mini crazy bird die set, Tim Holtz birthday die cut, Tim Holtz dot fade stencil, white embossing paste, DCWV twine, paper piercer

Today's challenge on SCS is the Featured Stamper challenge, and the Featured Stamper is Pam.  I chose to CASE this card, and made the following changes: I used one layer for the card base, distress ink and embossing paste to create the "patterned" paper, and I used one layer for my die cut word.  This isn't my typical CAS card, it took me forever!  But it was fun to use so many different products on one card.  I added glossy accents to the balloon and the birthday word die cut.  To make it look like the bird was holding the balloon string I pierced a hole above and below his wing to thread the baker's twine through. And I love the texture that the embossing paste adds to the watercolored background.  

Thanks for stopping by!
