Sending a Birthday Tweet | Art Impressions Challenge #271 Animal Cards

Hello everyone!
Today we are showcasing animal cards over on the Art Impressions blog for challenge #271. I'm using the Hoppy Birdy set to create a bright and punny birthday card! I can't wait to see what animal all of you use to enter in to the challenge. Art Impressions has so many of them!


I started off by using a couple of stencils to create my background. Using makeup brushes and Distress Inks to create my stencil scene. I wanted something bright and happy for the bird! I stamped the tweeting bird onto a piece of Neenah 80lb card stock with copic friendly ink. Then used Copic markers to color him in. I did look up references for Quail, I wasn't sure what colors they are... apparently they come a in a wide variety! I'll have the Copic markers I used listed below.


I also stamped the balloon and one of the party hats separately so that once I was done coloring all the images I could fussy cut everything out and layer them. I used a Distress ink and did a quick wash of watercolor on some watercolor paper. I also used several dies from Art Impressions to add some interest. The Rounded Rectangle Double Stitch die, second to largest, was used on my stenciled background piece. I also used one of the smaller Banner dies to die cut twice, once from white cardstock and the second from aqua. I kept the sentiment pretty simple by stamping it with Versafine Onyx Nocturne ink on to the white banner. 


After adhering everything together including the bird I stamped the balloon carefully. Letting it overlap over top of the bird. The balloon stamp is part of a different stamp that comes in the Hoppy Birdy set, but it is very easy to use a stamp positioning tool and ink up just the balloon and string. You could also mask off the image. 

Now I can add the final touches of the fussy cut party hat and balloon (no string). Using a bit of liquid glue to adhere those down. 

Copic Markers Used:
E59, E57, E34
W6, W4, W3, W1
BG13, BG11, Y38

That is it for today! Thank you so much for joining me today. Happy Stamping!
