Close-up of the awesome "copper" roof!!
So here's a blue bird (versus yesterday's pink bird...) - I'm please with how it turned out. I'm actually surprised the paper took the Copics so well. It's just some text-weight (well, probably a bit stiffer than regular ol' printer paper but only just.....) Kraft-looking paper with some speckles in it. I picked it up at the now-defunct Paper Zone ages ago (it was marked down ridiculously low) and have just hung onto it until it was needed.
I thought having a crimped copper roof would be snug & cozy AND add a nice bit of texture. The wood grain CS is from A Muse (been hoarding that for way too long!). And did you see the sentiment?? It's from the Birthday Buddies set but it works wonderfully well here!

Want to try the FREE bird digi-stamp/image?? Well then, you can get it (and a "thanks" sentiment too) lickety split for yourself
right here !! Poke around and you'll find some cool card sketches there too - I used one for yesterdays card but today's card just popped into my noggin on its own.
