But through the clouds I’ll never float…

Another day, another male card and another Bird Crazy stamp from Tim Holtz.

January has proven very busy for male birthdays and I am loving how quick and easy it is to make a masculine card with these Bird Crazy stamps.  This card follows the sketch over at Sunday Stamps, which I flipped.  I made the shaped element using a stencil and some Distress Ink in Mowed Grass softened with Peeled Paint.  I then stamped my crazy bird in Archival Ink and coloured him up.  I added in a sentiment but the birdie looked like he was looking at something off in the distance so I went in and added the balloon floating away.  I deliberately stamped it off the edge to add to the impression it was drifting away.

This isn’t quite a one layer card, I double matted the white cardstock to add some weight and a nice border but it is still CAS so I am entering it in the current challenge at Craft Rocket.  Over at Cute Card Thursday they are looking for masculine projects, which my card is, so I am also linking my card there.
