When I saw Tim Holtz's new Bird Crazy stamp set, I knew I HAD to have it, asap.
C'mon, you KNOW these things are gonna speak to me--
So, I went and I GOT it!
I made this--
Uh, THIS guy---
You know, from The Maltese Falcon and stuff--
Anyway, he always played the kind of guy who looked so stressed out that he hadn't slept in a week, so I went with the red eyed, sweaty-browed look on him.
Glossy Accents are my best friend here! I filled in this guy's eyes, to make them all glazed and watery. Tiny dots of GA then hit his brow, to give him that sweaty look.
As you can see, I am still having issues with my fillers getting hung up in my shaker. Whatever. They look dead all empty, anyway...
I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, and I stamped some eggs on that wood grain piece behind my bird. There's also a silhouette of a bird in flight inside the shaker, just ever so faintly.
I do believe in carrying on with a theme, don'tcha know...
I kind of dig the juxtaposition of the encouraging sentiments and bright colors with the frazzled, stressed-out looking bird. I imagine that the person who needs this cared could have some of that look about them...
I am IN LOVE with these bird images. Stay tuned for a SUPER irreverent series that makes me giggle like a twelve year old. Get ready to either laugh, or roll your eyes, BIG TIME!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
