Avery Elle Tweet Tweet birthday card

Simply Create Too

Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Simply Create Too. The challenge is an easy one this time with 'anything goes', so why not join in with us this week. 

I have a friend who is crazy about parrots and when I saw the fabulous Tweet Tweet stamp set from Avery Elle, I knew it would make a perfect card for him.

I started off by cutting a piece of watercolour paper and painting a sky and sand background on it. Whilst it was drying, I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the umbrella and birds, and added some glaze to the beaks to give some authentic sheen. When the background was dry, I stamped the sentiment, some music notes, and some flying birds in the top left corner, before gluing down the umbrella and arranging the birds on the perches.

I decided that the birds still looked a bit flat, so I finished off with  another coat of glaze on the beaks and a few spots of white pen to add some highlights.

Why not jump over to the Simply Create Too blog to see what my talented Team Mates have to show you this time.

Thanks for stopping by.
