Birds on a Wire

Have you seen the Pixar short film "For the Birds"? This adorable DoodleFactory Pip & Oggy stamp, reminded me of the film right away. That was the inspiration for my simple card today. My order from Starving Artistamps, Inc. arrived, and I wanted to play with these cute little guys first. The clouds were made using a cloud stencil and sponging with light blue ink. The "wire" is a thin piece of black card stock. I colored my birds with Copic Sketch markers, and popped them up on Dimensionals. The sentiment is hand-written.

Thanks for visiting!!

God bless.
