Birthday Bird in Red, White and Blue



I wanted to do a birthday card featuring this cute whimsical bird and decided a bold background would be fun.  Since it is The 4th of July, I used Red, White and Blue as my color inspiration.  I started by stamping the Hero Arts Tribal Stripes Bold Print Background Stamp with Ranger Denim ink.  Next I stamped the bird from one of my favorite stamp sets,  Simon Says Stamp Stacking Animals.

I used the same denim ink for the bird and sentiment to tie the card together.  I colored the bird with Copic markers and then added Tonic Nuvo Glaze to the birds beak. I trimmed the smaller panel down and mounted (with foam tape) on the blue background,.  I then mounted the background on a white card and stamped a birthday sentiment inside the card.
