Anniversary Birds

Hubby and I will celebrate our 37th anniversary tomorrow!   I knew immediately what stamps I wanted to use on his anniversary card....Tim Holtz's Bird Crazy, of course!
I altered the birds a bit.  I added eyelids and eyebrows to both, eye lashes to the purple one (me), and glasses to the green one (Dan).  Then I watercolored the birds with distress inks, and cut them out.  
For the background I rubbed some inks on a piece of acrylic, spritzed it lightly, then rubbed it across the watercolor paper.  I used foam tape behind the birds to give them dimension.  The "you" is die cut and layered to give it dimension, then hand-printed the rest.  Finally, I added dimensional glaze to the glasses and the die cut "you."

I gave him his card early, because I just couldn't wait.  He loved it!

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp blog Wednesday challenge HERE.   The theme is Friends or super hero.  After 37 years, I would say we are friends!  

I am also entering it in Virginia's View ombre inspiration challenge HERE.   The theme is monochromatic or ombre.  

Finally, it is Day Ten of The Daily Marker Coloring challenge, so I'm sending it along there.

Thanks for stopping by.
