Yesterday, according to the list of Wacky Holidays, was "Draw a Bird Day." While I was catching up on some blogs this weekend I saw a stamp of a bird that was made completely of floral images. I thought about ordering it, but then decided that I would try to make my own bird.
I've used all SU stamps. The face/head is from Build A Blossom. The crest and neck is from Fresh Cuts. Two stamps from Trendy Trees were used for the wing and feet. One of the images from Pocket Silhouettes served as the body stamped over and over and in both colors. And the tail was one of the images from Vases in Vogue.
I was having fun with this so I made two! The base is Summer Starfruit and then a layer of Lucky Limeade - used that for the flowers too. The torn panel is Midnight Muse. And the inks I used were Summer Starfruit and Midnight Muse stamped off once or twice in some areas.
So while I didn't really Draw a Bird, I did create a bird of my own. (BTW - HWNSNBP said it looked like a turkey!)
It was my intention to add some pictures of the latest "Bird Wars" that are going on at the school nesting box, but the battery in my camera pooped out so I'll have to save that for another installment at a later date.
