So, I was out shopping the other day and ran across this gift bag that made me laugh out loud...it looked so much like one of my favorite Technique Junkie Stamps, "Your Kind of Crazy".  from the August 2017 release, I just had to buy it.  OMGeee...is this not the cutest gift bag???  

I could not wait to get my stamp out and create a card from this inspiration bag....

This card was so much fun to create and I just had to share it here.  The image was stamped with a light grey dye ink and I used my Chameleon Color Tone Pencils to color the ostrich.  I drew in some longer eyelashes and used my white gel pen to highlight the eyes a bit more.  The white "pearls" and "crowns" were drawn on with my Posca white pen.  I had some feathers in my stash so I cut a tiny slit in at the base of each crown and stuck them inside.  I had some colored dew drops so added them at the base of the feathers.  The final touch was to doodle around the image (as it is on the bag), mount in against a darker die cut and mount it to the background layer.  I used a star stencil on the bg layer and sponged white pigment ink into the negative areas to create the bg.

That's my post!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you found some inspiration or better...a giggle!

Cheri, this is the cutest use of that stamp. I love working with feathers. You've inspired me to take a different look at some stamps.

Of course you HAD TO buy that gift bag SS it is so cool! and to make such a spectacularly gorgeous card from it is TALENT! You have captured every element from that bag and transferred it to your stunning card. Love the eyes that just stare right through you. Awesome die cut shape especially with the doodling. The crown and necklaces finish this off perfectly. This would have to be a big favourite of mine here. It's just so perfect!!!
