Near or Far, Just Tweet!

Hi again my crafty friends,

I am stopping for a quick visit today to share a cute little creation using the Tim Holtz Crazy Birds
Stamps and Dies Set.  Also the Crazy Things Stamp Set which is so much fun.  I tried out a new technique, for me, on my last post which was to use stamped tissue paper.  I was happy with the face on my Steampunk girl so thought I would try it on a bigger scale. It worked beautifully.  I used the Tim Holtz "Enjoy the Journey" Stamp and Die Set for this one.

Near or far, just tweet!

After stamping the compass image on tissue paper, I embossed it with white embossing powder.  I added it using gel medium to a wood block that I had already painted blue.  Next I added more parts of the compass that had been stamped and embossed on blue paper.  I added feet to the block and a flower on top.  Below is a side view.

I really get a chuckle out of these birds and hope you do as well. 
Until next time-
Stay Crafty,

  2. Ohh, it's so cute! A lovely project!

  3. OMG! S@ndy--you even embossed on the tissue paper?! Now, that's cool and something I haven't tried on tissue paper, yet! Thanks for experimenting with that, because I've always wondered if it would work/hold up :) Love this darling tweeterly creation!! XOXO-Shari
