Shadow Bird

The sun was shining today- Hurrah, for we've had torrential rain for what seems like ages so it was such a joy to see the sun today.

I started with a manila tag, then sprayed with Dylusions Sprays and some Tattered Angels. then I added some tissue tape and sprayed again. Then I stamped using Black Staz On using the Rogue Redhead Designs Floriculture Set.

To create my Shadow Bird I made my own mask using the cut out of the Die Cut bird and sprayed with Dylusions London Blue. I then used a marker to add some definition as well as a hand cut heart which I painted with gold acrylic paint and sprayed with some red, and finally added some Crystal Effects.
There's also some gold acrylic paint on the tag and some beeswax to add a bit some texture to my shadow bird.

I'm entering this over at Simon says Stamp and Show where Anything Goes :-)

Love these birds and what a fabulous background! My bird turned 25 and is as mean as can be! Enjoy the Sun!

Beautiful rich colors in your tropical forest behind your lovely birds. Lovely details and touches of color in the flowers. Glad you joined us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
