Party At The Nest!

  This was so much fun to make! Made this canvas for Nancy, who was celebrating a milestone birthday! We've known each other since 1979! 

  For the background: Gelatos, Glimmer Mists, Dylusions sprays, stencils, stamps, drywall tape, sequins, white tulle, and a blue feather. Did some faux stitching around canvas with a fine sharpie.

  The black Punchinella (or sequin waste), top left and bottom right corners, I bought at a local fabric store. It comes in all colours and was 79 cents/m. A little goes a long way! Bought some gold and silver to use on Christmas cards. 

    Gotta love the Bird Crazy stamps and matching dies! The crown is 2 dies from Memory Box, glued together. I stamped the birds on patterned paper, then cut them out with the matching dies, added some Distress Inks around the edges and on top. Stamped them again, and used the specific matching dies (beak, eyes, wings), then layered them. The party hat is from another TH stamp set, cut to size.

  The sentiment stamps are from an Inkadinkado set called "Bird Assortment". I stamped them on vellum with StazOn ink; heat dried to make sure they wouldn't smear, then stuck them down with Mod Podge.

  The checkered swirl stamp at the bottom is from a stamp set from Dylusions/Ranger called "Doodled Circles". It was stamped on tissue paper and also stuck down with Mod Podge. 

  I also spray painted this wooden easel for the canvas to sit on.

  This is the back of the canvas with her birthday greeting! The 2 birds with attitude, are from the same Inkadinkado stamp set, "Bird Assortment".

So fabulous! I just love the layered colours in the background and the Crazies look amazing. It's very clear how much fun you had, and I'm sure Nancy will love it.
