Have not had a play date in a while, so the little birdie in the picture said to get busy, and I did. It was The Play Date Cafe's Challenge #147 (to be exact).
So I saw the little birdie in Little Yellow Bicycle's Hello Spring paper (because I was using it for another layout). And that little birdie said to get busy as well. He told me the colors were right and to make a gray card base and get to it. And so I did.
And I came up with the little design below . . .
A Sizzix die is used for the sentiment. I cut the bird from another part of the paper and popped him up. He had a tail that could not be cut, so he asked me to make him a new one . . . and I did.
Now, the color in this picture below is a bit awful, but I wanted to capture how I made my birds fluffy tail feathers. Fiskars heart punch . . . made a heart, then kept shifting it and making little cuts to make the little wispy pieces . . . and when I had seven . . . the bird said, "That's enough. I'm small." And so it was.
