I was going through my stamps a few days ago (in an attempt to organize them a bit) and came across this sentiment. I had totally forgotten that it was in my stash. It's been haunting me ever since and I knew I needed to find a way to use it. I just like this weird bird, too. :)
I covered my envie with Distress inks (Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron), sprinkled water, did a little background stamping and stenciling and was done. The bird is colored with Copics and highlighted with white gel pen. I also used the gel pen on some of the water splotches to brighten up the background a bit.
And here's the inspiration pic that started it all:
Now the trick will be to find somebody to send this to who won't be offended. Ha ha!!
