Chirp-Chirp!

This little bird was created to send a BIG cheery Chirp!  

The “dorky bird” image from Stamps By Judith is a  fun little bird with twiggy legs, but supports a whole lot of personality.  She has a style all her own and is enjoying life in feathers because they are flocked.  Can you see how fuzzy she is?  Marvy Uchida makes “Puffy Velvet Fabric Markers.”  I love using the velvet markers, because it eliminates all the mess in using flock out of a bottle.  Even though they are fabric markers, you can use them on paper.  Don’t you love that?

Once the image is stamped, just color with the velvet marker.  I have found that in order to get a nice velvety puff, it is best to color, allow to dry, and then color again.  Multiple layers of coloring really makes it nice and poofy.  However, keep in mind that allowing each layer to dry is important.  Once you are satisfied with the layers, then heat with a heat tool.  This is when you will notice a really nice flocked look.  And it was that simple.

Miss Personality is also wearing paper pieced bows to keep those wild feathers under control.  The bows and heart background were stamped with a “stick” stamper from Stamps By Judith.  Have I mentioned how awesome those “stick” and “stubby” stampers are? 🙂  They were then colored with a green glitter gel pen.
