than the one this crazy bird is experiencing. I saw a similar card on Pinterest and knew I had to recreate it.
The bird was inked with Jet Black Archival and stamped twice onto watercolor cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut him out. Clear Rock Candy distress stickles was used on his eyes; Fired Brick distress stickles on his wings and head feathers. His beak and wings were elevated with tiny foam dots.
I colored white card stock with Hickory Smoke distress ink; heat set then colored again with Brushed Pewter distress ink; heat set again. Stamped Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers can in Watering Can archival ink; cut out; edge with brown and black distress inks.
Using a small Vial Label I wrote 'chicken soup' with a black Fude Ball pen. While cutting it down to size the ink smeared. So I continued dabbing at the label so it would look intentional. Then I heat set it before applying it to the can.
On a scrap of water color card stock I traced around a Claudine Hellmuth stencil of word bubbles. I inked 'Marty???' using Hero Arts alphabet stamps and Jet Black archival ink. I added a bit of brown and black distress ink to shade the edge.
I edged the Adage Ticket with brown and black distress inks then crumpled it before adding it behind the tin can.
A friend is going through a rough patch; I hope this brings a smile to her face.
