Happy Birds on a Wire

Written by Kelly Latevola. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello Crafters!

Have you seen these adorable little birds from WPlus9?!


You can’t help but smile when you look at them. I couldn’t wait to get these cuties on a card. I picked them for my Periscope last week and received a request from a follower to share it. Since it includes lots of Copic coloring I thought maybe you guys would want to see it too!

I started by cutting a strip of watercolor paper and creating a subtle background. I used Windsor & Newton watercolors but you could easily get the same results with Distress inks in Salty OceanBlueprint Sketch, and Dusty Concord. After it was dry I stamped the wire and the birds in a black archival ink. This way I could adhere my Copic colored birds on top and have no issues lining them up. I adhered the watercolor piece to some blue violet card stock and ran it through my cuttlebug with the ruffled edge die from WPlus9’s Sunshines Layers Die.


I stamped the birds on a separate piece of cardstock, in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored them up and trimmed them out. The Copic Markers I used are: R32, R35, R29, R59, Y08, Y38, Y04, Y09, V00, V12, V04, and V09. I added some white spots to their bellies with a white gel pen and outlined them with a black pen. After I trimmed them out I used a Memento Tuxedo Black pen to run around the edges and give it a finished look. After I stamped my sentiment I popped them up on top with some foam tape.

Thanks so much for visiting!
