Addicted to CAS Challenge #152 - Birds



Hi there, blog friends! Today starts a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. Our Hostess is Vicki and she is challenging everyone to create a card using the Code Word ‘Birds’.
Our Guest Designer is Sandie Munro  (winner of challenge #150) and she has created a beautiful CAS card to inspire everyone.

I have several bird stamps and dies in my stash so it was hard to choose, but I finally decided on this little guy:


I started by sponging the stencil then coloring the Toucan with Copic markers. I added a wonky stitched circle die cut in vellum and googly eyes (with eyelashes!).

Ok, now we would love to see how the code word ‘Birds’ inspires you! If you would like to see inspiration from the Design Team and play along with us, visit the ATCAS Blog HERE ~

Thanks so much for stopping by,







Supplies:
Stamps: MFT - Toucan Do It
Dies: MFT - Toucan Do It, Wonky Stitched Circles
Stencil: Hero Arts - Long Leaves
Inks: Hero Arts - Green Hills; Papertrey Ink - Green Parakeet, New Leaf
Misc: Copic Markers; Pretty Pink Posh - Sequins; Vellum cardstock; Googly Eyes

I love your happy little Toucan and the tropical foliage all around. The vellum and goodly eye really bump this wonderful design up a few notches, and your coloring is stellar as always. Fantastic card, Barb.
