Bird House


For the challenge at Awfully Big Art Adventure.

This is tiny - 1.5" x 3" - not the right size for a moo or a skinny but that's just how it turned out. The little house is from a stamp set 'Mini Frames' by Invoke cut out and raised from the background with silicone glue and the little bird is from my stash; I've had him for ages waiting for an opportunity to display his bright colours and this seemed ideal.

The background is just me messing around with some inks and making a rather feeble attempt at drawing a tree because where else would a bird house be but in a tree?

  2. Nothing feeble about the background. It's very effective. Great little image altogether.

  4. I Love it Ali!! especially the bird. You must try the puree tube, it will look all creased but flattens out beautifully in the machine -apparently drinks cans are good too.
