Cupcake Bird

Hi and welcome!  It's my turn to host over at Inspired By All The Little Things and I have chosen a photo that lends itself to Easter cards, critter cards, food cards or just go with the colors!


For my guest, I have invited Lisa Lara, who makes the most adorable cards and is one of the best Copic colorists I know.  Be sure to check out her card and prepare to be wow'd (and smile!)

For my card, I wanted to stick with the cupcake and bird theme, so after a bit of masking, I came up with this card.



I love this stamp set from MFT and I used the bird from Somebunny to add a bit of fun to it.  I won't go into any great detail because I filmed the making of this card so you can watch it below or over on YouTube





 




Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to head on over the the IBATLT blog to check out Lisa's card and the fabulous cards made by the design team.

Edited to Add:  While looking at this post in preview mode before scheduling it, it struck me that the bird looks like he could very well be sitting in a huge pile of bird poop!  Rest assured that wasn't my intention, but is actually quite funny when I look at it now 😄

Products used:

Stamps:  Somebunny, Sweet Birthday Wishes, Because You (MFT),
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid
Cardstock:  White, X-Press It, Dark Chocolate (SSS)
Dies:  Because You, Blueprints 20 (MFT)
Accessories:  Copics, Fun Foam, Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen

Cheers
Karren

No way he looks like he's sitting in poop, that iceing is too nicely styled to be pooped. Love it, the card your design the amazing colouring, perfect.
