Funky Bird Thank You Card

I thought I would stamp something fun today.  I'm usually all about flowers and leaves.  But today I decided to just have a little fun with color and funky stamps.  Actually, I had some card stock all stamped up with some bird stamps I had stamped when I was with my friend, Karen.  The stamps are by Dyan Reaveley, Dylusion cling stamps.  So, I pulled out my colored pencils, and this happened.....
I sponged color over a Recollections stencil from one of their stamp and stencil sets onto a lime green card, using the small circles stencil and TH distress inks in twisted citron and broken china.  The bird and cheep cheep boxes were stamped on white card stock, and colored with my Faber Castell polychromos colored pencils.  I didn't do anything fancy...just cut out the bird and sayings and did some layering with foam tape, and a touch of the Spectrum Noir sparkle brush for a touch of shimmer.  I did that last step after taking the picture, however.  The Thanks sentiment is from a Printworks clear stamp set (Many Thanks Q003).

Of course, this card is going to Karen.  Not only did I use her stamps, but she sent me home with a couple of dozen home made biscotti.  And boy, are they ever yummy!!  Such a great friend!!
