I am on a roll with the Elegant Bird Bigz die! I have been having alot of fun creating with it and I have a list of ideas yet to work on. Hopefully, by the time I have completed them and posted them, you will love the Elegant Bird die as much as I do. Ok, maybe you will at least give it a try?!
The seventies: Flower Power, Bell Bottoms, Tie Dye, the Peace Symbol, Earth Shoes, Big Macs, and so much more!
I thought it would be fun to make a "tie dyed" peace bird using watercolor paper and reinkers. The Peace Symbol was an afterthought so I had to use some ingenuity to create one.
To create the bird, I wet the watercolor paper thoroughly and then added reinker with a watercolor brush. I also used a water spritzer to make the color move when necessary.
To create the symbol, I die cut the letter "Y" and "I" with my Timeless Type Sizzlits. Then I trimmed them and glued them to the outer circle I punched with 2 circle punches.
All Supplies are Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Four the Holidays
Paper: Watercolor paper
Cardstock: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black
Ink: Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Real Red, Elegant Eggplant, Wild Wasabi
Other: Big Shot, Elegant Bird Bigz Die (Occasions Mini), Timeless Type Sizzlits, Tulip Frame emb. folder, Black Brad, Watercolor Brush, 1" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch
And now, the directions for the Candle Sleeve in yesterday's post found here. I don't have step by step photos this time.
1. Die cut 5 Lattices from Whisper White cardstock.
2. Die cut 5 Lattices from Silver Glimmer paper.
3. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue and glue a White Lattice to a Glimmer Lattice. Do all 5 like this and allow to dry thoroughly.
4. Poke a hole in each corner of each lattice. Poke from the Glimmer side to the back.
5. I found it easiest to arrange the 5 lattices in a "T" with the Glimmer side up. Arrange them so there are 4 across and the 5th one under any of the other 4.
6. Put a Silver Mini Brad through the points of one lattice and the points of the next one and the next until all points are connected in the cube shape.
The lid fits right over the sleeve.
Another Elegant Bird is on board for tomorrow - don't say I didn't warn you!
Thanks for stopping.
