Hey Look! It's a Bird!!

So, of all the cards from my Swirly Bird set you haven't seen one bird yet. That is finally going to change today :)

So, at long last, here is the swirly bird :) I used the Chocolate marker to freehand the branch (it really is easy- just take a deep breath, make swipes for the basic shape, and then fatten them up). The next thing I added was the next stamp (a.k.a. the bottom of the boat). Then the birdy and egg, lastly I scattered the leaf stamps in all the space left. And a bright sun up in the corner- although you could just do the swirly framelit and skip that stamp and it would look awesome too!

Just a couple final finishing touches- I added a little gold thread into the sun to fancy it up. Then I cut up the linen thread into a bunch of short little chunks and glued them onto the nest stamp. So you can no longer see the stamp.... but it gave me an excellent idea of the shape to glue them in :)

Hope you've enjoyed this Swirly Bird series! Flutterby again soon :)

Pin It!
