BAT-ty Crazy Birds

TGiF and the weekend is almost upon us - got plans ?

Today I'm sharing a card with you that has lots going on in the design !  My pal Kathy the Purple Princess suggested I might like the Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamp set but I wasn't quite sure I'd use them.  I dillied and dallied for a while then decided to get them - only to find they were out of stock..... everywhere humph !

Undeterred I continued to search t'internet until I managed to find the set and I'm so glad I did, thanks Kathy.

Are you ready for this ?

Supplies I used to create my card

* 6 x 6 base card
* Crafters Companion Watercolour card
* BAT background created earlier using Bleeding Art Tissue punched shapes
* Tim Holtz stencils - Dots and Mesh
* Memory Box stencil - Circles
* Adirondack Inks - Wild Plum and Denim
* Dylusions Ink - White
* White chalk paint
* Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamp set - stamped once on the finished background and once on plain white card then fussy cut out
* Black Archival Ink
* ProMarkers to colour the cut out birds - coloured images attached over the images stamped onto background.
* Brusho Acrylic Shimmer Spray in Silver sprayed over the whole of finished background
* Crafters Companion Spray and Shine sprayed lightly over background to seal inks
* Sentiment from a magazine freebie set of stamps

Thanks for dropping by, have a great day.

WOW! I am LOVING this one matey, what's not to love? How do you rate the brusho shimmer spray, both for its shimmeriness and sealant powers?

Well worth all the effort to get them and your card is a triumph! Lx
