The crazy bird

I made this bird a while back- maybe even July or August? It was when I learned the technique of ribbon fraying. You pull a small piece of the end of the grosgrain(only 1 end works) and you unravel the ribbon. That’s how I got the crazy Birds hair.

The Bird is cut from the Oval coluzzle in so saffron. I sponged the edges in pumpkin ink. The grass is hand cut from scraps then I ran them through the crimper. The nose and legs are also hand cut. To see my inspiration, click here.

Stamps: circle of friendship (retired)
Paper: so saffron, old olive and rose red card stock and DSP
Ink: rose red, pumpkin
Accessories: ribbon, oval coluzzle, paper crimper, circle punches
