I just LOVE this little lady!!! What a fun and sparkly flirty bird featuring the Oh So Succulents Bundle. This sweetie makes me do my “happy chair dance” each time I look at it. (smile) I came across an inspiring card on Pinterest (Yeah baby!) and instantly thought of Big Bird from Sesame Street. (Giggles) Thank you to for the inspiration, you can see the card here.
Well, I didn’t really want to do an all yellow bird so I went with shades of pink. (Hello….my favorite color. Lol!) I also had loads of fun working with all the bits and pieces in the Succulent Framelits Die Set.
SPARKLY FLIRTY BIRD: I started with the bird body first using the four the four varying sizes of 8-petal shapes. Sponging the edges with Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride ink to add dimension. [TIP: The center flowers are Whisper White sponged with Blushing Bride.] Then I stamped the ends of the petals with VersaMark and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. [Heat & Stick emboss powder with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter would work too.] All the other shapes where sponged as well to add dimension. The tufts were stamped in Pool Party and die cut. They coordinate with the “legs and beak” which were also emboss with the Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Love it!
BASE: She ended up being large then I expected so I had to place her on a 5″ x 7″ size card instead of the normal A2 size (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″). To make her pop I opted for a Whisper White base. I embossed a face layer with the Brick Wall embossing folder then adhering it to the base. Then I tore the edges of two Old Olive/Pear Pizzazz strips and sponged the edges as well. Sponging the edges makes ALL the difference.
SENTIMENT: There are several sentiments included with this stamp set. Woohoo! I love the “special person”, it goes fabulously with this Sparkly Flirty guy. Woohoo! I am sad that this bundle is on the retiring list. [You can check it out here.] Make sure to order soon before it’s gone. ALSO……the individual Framelits and Stamp Set are on sale which makes them cheaper then purchasing the bundle. Just sayin’!
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a great weekend and Easter! AND I hope you enjoyed this fun and sparkly Oh So Succulent punch art bird.
