Oh my. I pulled out all the bird stamps I have, including rubber duckies and penguins and flamingos and peacocks and owls, and not one of them jumped out at me and said "here's a card". I don't actually have a lot of bird stamps - especially compared to flowers and butterflies. And I have never liked the 'bird-day' pun (although I am guilty of enjoying quite a few other puns!). Really, this is a card I never would have made without this challenge - and that's what makes the challenges so much fun!
My first attempt was a little busy and required a ton of masking:
So I tried another:
And I quite like it. I chose this bird because his beak was pointing up - ready to hold onto the balloons. And I do love the bright colours and all the white space.
However, he's looking the wrong way. Up is good, but in my humble opinion, the future is up and to the right. Always. It's just one of my card-making quirks and probably why this guy has never seen ink.
What are your card-making quirks?
