Tim Holtz 'Bird Crazy'!


A while ago the lovely and super talented Anna-Karin made THESE TAGS using Micro Glaze as a resist for the Distress Ink, what a clever idea I thought, so I CASE'd her ;-)




I used a paint brush to apply the Micro Glaze to the areas of the bird, party hat and balloons that I wanted to remain white and then had a lovely time colouring with distress inks. 



Thanks for looking! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend :-)

I love how this turned out--those crazy birds crack me up. did you know they're coming up with small versions? and crazy cats? In any case, your background is fab. I'm going to try that micro glaze resist too. thanks for the inspiration!

Great card! I love how you used the embossing paste on the background. It's one of my new favorite things. Congrats on being one of our top picks at Stampin' Royalty for our birthday challenge!
