Crazy Birds

Birthdays, birthdays, birthday!  I have 14 family members with birthdays in July and August.  Phew!  I have a lot of cards to get made!  LOL!  That’s what you get when you have a large family.  Gotta love them all!

The first birthday card is for one of my brothers-in-laws.  I choose Tim Holz Crazy Birds, Crazy Talk, and Crazy Things to create my card.

I did a lot of masking on this card.  This was the first time I had used my Copics on Neenah Desert Storm paper.  I liked the way it turned out.  I had used colored pencils before, but never Copics.   I had seen some cards done by Julia Altemann.  She gave some good tips, like letting the Copics dry a little bit as the color will be different on kraft paper than it is on white paper.

After coloring the birds, I added some Glossy Accents to their beaks and parts of their hats to add some interest.  I then added some wiggle eyes to two of the birds.
