"Bird Crazy" just got better!

Hello friends…so glad you've stopped by today! 
I'm so excited about the NEW Thinlits die set for Tim Holtz "Bird Crazy" Stamp set! The die cuts out all the birds, wings, eyes and beaks. 

I LOVE these guys soo much I had to use them all for my project.

Stamp the birds on to Watercolor cardstock and die cut using the matching Thinlit die. I like to do all my die cutting before I color just incase I make a mistake when I line up the die. 

I found it INCREDIBLE that the dies fit so perfectly around all the bird images. Simple AMAZING two companies can work together with such detail. Mind boggling really! Kudos to Stampers Anonymous and Sizzix for making this happen. 

I used all the new Distress Marker colors Cracked Pistachio, Abandon Coral, Mermaid Lagoon, Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron, Hickory Smoke and I need a brown so I used Gathered Twigs. I also used a Detail Waterbrush to blend out the colors then added a little more color with the Distress Spritzer. Love all the texture and depth it adds. 

At the bottom of the pile is the bird I have named Max. He's such a cutie don't you think!!

Which "Bird Crazy" friend is your favorite?
