Time for some Girl Fun!!

My jars of Ribbons look colourful on the shelf but rarely get used these days

But today the tiniest length of green ribbon is used to make a small bow for one of my "birds"

Well I've never made a "Rocker" card before today but it was quite easy and fun...  I am playing along with the Butterfly Challenge  #135  "R" for Rocker Card.  --- I used all seven 'R' elements on my card.
I used a small bowl to trace around, on white card and carefully cut it out - then followed the directions to create a "Stepped" version .... cut some bright feathery DP for the front of the card and a small piece of dark green for the back step.  Then stamped the 'crazy birds' in black ink and used coloured pencils to colour them in.... using the three colours required for the challenge - Rifle Green, Raspberry and Rajah (pale orange), then fussy cut them out.  I decided to make them into 'girls' - added some smiles, eyelashes with fine black marker, then gave them headwear.... a ribbon bow, a shiny die cut pink butterfly, and turned the third ones curly top into a tiara with a silver gel pen and gems.  I arranged the "Birds" on the card with foam tape and then used a thin piece of acetate to 'raise up' the speech bubble which I printed on the computer.

Thanks for stopping by my blog  ----  have a Happy Day

  2. Oh my gosh Robyn...this rocking card is so fun and absolutely ADORABLE!! I love those TH Crazy Birds and need to get mine out as they haven't seen ink in quite awhile! You did a beautiful job creating this card and the coloring on those birds is FABULOUS! And YAY for using a bit of ribbon!! (My stash rarely gets used these days either!) Also, a BIG thank you for the BEAUTIFUL birthday's my first one and is set up on the entertainment center for everyone to enjoy (especially me!). Thank you, thank you friend!! :0)

  5. Oh my gosh , your trio of birdies are terrific and I love the rocker card you have made for them. Thankyou for coming and spinning the buterfly rocker wheel this week. Hugs Mrs A.

  6. This is so much fun! LOVe those birds. ESpecially the one with the shiny metallic butterfly in her hair! xx

  7. It's funny how ribbon is now so out of vogue and we all have an over abundance of them. I have managed to use a smidgen of mine lately. Love your bowls of colour 'on display'. Have had this card in my inbox since you first posted and kept coming back to look at it. A truly fabulous fun card. Creative with what you added to the bird heads. Beautifully coloured and wow to your rocker card - perfect for these fun birds to 'rock on'.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, all encouragement and inspiration is very welcome. May your day be a happy and extra special one, cheers Robyn
