It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week's theme is Show Us Your Smile, and we'd like you to use either an image that contains a smile, or the word smile. We'll also take smiley words, like grin, laugh, etc.
I decided to break out my Bird Crazy stamps since I recently purchased the dies and also the accessories stamp set. I needed to justify that particular retail therapy moment.
I went through my irreverent sentiments and found one from Riley and Company I thought would work.
Here's the resulting card, then I'll explain:
I tried. I really did. I thought it would be fun to dress him up a little, so I added a ladies' sun hat and a bow tie. I water colored all the pieces with Distress Inks.
When I looked through the jumble of dies that come in the Bird Crazy set, I saw it contained not just the outlines, but various smaller dies to cut wings and other part-is-parts. I found the die for this guy's wing, and only partially cut it so I could tuck something under it.
That something was the bunch of flowers from the accessory set. I don't think I'll use the accessories enough to need the dies, but it would have been nice for these flowers. ;) I colored them, fussy-cut them, and tucked them under his wing.
I like to think of this as a goofy guy surprising his girl with flowers.
So, got smiley stamps or dies? Why not break them out and play along with us at SOS?
Thanks for stopping by!
Stuff I used: SU Kraft card stock (yes, it's still marked Kraft, not Crumb Cake), MFT sun die (really old), Riley & Company sentiment, Copic YR07 (for the beak), and the following:
