Cockatoo Rules!

I have been so busy lately making birthday cards for my rather large family that I haven’t had time to post any of them here on my blog.

This was a fun card to make.  One of my brother-in-laws had a birthday recently and loves to take a ride on his motorcycle.  I searched for an image that would work and came across this image, Cockatoo Rules, at Paper Shelter and thought it would be perfect!

I used my Copics to color him up.  I have listed the colors I used at the bottom of this post.

I wanted to create a “scene” for Cockatoo, so decided to add some hills in the background and a lovely blue sky.  I just cut a piece of card stock and then added some different distress greens to create the hills.  I did the same with the blues to create my sky.

I wanted to give Cockatoo some pop, so I added an action wobble to the back of him before adding him to the card.  I had some puffy stickers that I thought worked well for the sun and Cockatoo’s comment.  I used Simon Says Stamp‘s Brush Stroke Messages for the Happy Birthday.  A few Nuvo drops in Oyster Grey and Woodland Green and my card was complete.

I enjoyed making this card and really liked how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!
