BIRDIES



We've had torso templates, triptychs, houses and now ..... designed by yours truly (toot toot) the BIRDY TEMPLATE! And yes, it fits exactly inside the dimensions for an ATC, so if you want to mount them on an ATC card you can. And of course they also fit in the storage sheets so many of us use. Email me for a Word document template.

The two above are my prototypes and the pink one is available to trade - I'm keeping the russet one for my own collection.

The background of the russet "mummy bird" was made on my first attempt with Adirondack Colour Wash sprays (this is terracotta), and I then stamped over it with a Crafty Individuals floral background stamp. Black card provides wings, beak and tail in both birds, and the nest on the wing is from a Lisa's Altered Art collage sheet, and I made two tiny eggs from copper card. The writing is a rub-on alphabet, and I finished off with some gold pen doodling.

The pink birdy was made with a textured pink paper onto which I added a crackle stamp in black. I used a swirl stamp to decorate the body, then more doodling using silver this time. I'd be delighted if any of you want to do a birdy swap with me - just email me - can't wait to see your creations!!
