Strange Bird

Hello.  Welcome.  Just posting a curious little ATC.  The colours were inspired by Wicked Wednesday where they want Mardi Gras colours, purple, green, gold.  I have also been playing with PaperArtsy SM12 after seeing Clare's posts over at PaperArtsy this week.


I started by painting my ATC with Pansy fresco finish paint and then added texture paste coloured with limelight through Tando Creative Ink Splatters mask.  I stamped SM12, coloured the crown with wink of stella green and the wings with purple and gold.  I added a green feather and a charm from KortHobby.  I used a couple of points that had broken of a crown charm for earings.

  3. Thanks for the early morning visit, Gail. I am Team 1 (there is a Team 2) on Stampotique. We all create every week, but only get spotlighted on the front page every other week! You noticed!! You ATC certainly gets noticed, too! Fantastic colors, but the feather is mesmerizing! What is that metal piece with which you attached it? First prize work from you, as always! Mwah!

  6. Hi Kay, it's a little teardrop shaped metal charm I stuck on top of the feather. The top is hidden under her chin.
