Water Colour Wednesday - Bon Voyage !!

Hi Everybody,

For todays water coloured card I thought I would have a little fun and dress these birds up in ways other than their intended.

And so out came the black fine liner and I added swimwear to both of them

I have turned one into a tall lady in a bikini and the other her short chubby companion.

Both have been coloured with suntans and both of them are carrying  a rolled up beach towel under their wings. Each one is sporting sun glasses. I created the sea and sky scene behind them with Distress Inks and added a flowery hat onto her head.

This card isn't going anywhere it was simply a little bit of playtime for me and I thoroughly enjoyed myself making this imaginary scene.

The stamps are Bird Crazy from Tim Holtz and they are a whole lot of fun to play with.  I hope they made you smile

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    What a fun card to brighten up what is, so far, a bit of a grey day. I love the swim-suits and their rolled up towels. A winner for sure :)

  16. Hi Christina, you certainly had fun with the birds. I love them and even bought their "attire" stamps. They're just fun and the little chubby one doesn't look a bit sad any more with the sunglasses on :-)
    Have a good day, Rose

  17. Good Morning Christina :) I purchased these Crazy Birds the day you showed us the first card you made with them. I absolutely love them and have made several cards with them already. There is no end on what you can do. I LOVE today's card! I really like the fact that you don't have to be "grungy" with them. Today's card is Brilliant Christina! I really enjoyed it! Thank you so much for sharing. Have a wonderfully creative day. Big Hugs

  31. Hi Christina, this card brought an instant smile to my face. I have made sooo many cards using these wonderful crazy birds and everyone I've given them to think they're so much fun. But I've never thought of giving them a sun tan, what a fantastic idea! You've done a great job of your beach background. x

  32. How fun, when I started seeing these birds I sure didn't like them. After a month or so, I see just what can be done with them and they are cute and funny. Love your watercolour card. Thanks for sharing.
