Sizzix Paper-cut Bird

Isn’t this fascinating?!  Paper-cut Bird by Sizzix/Tim Holtz is a full-size die, and this is the first and only card I’ve made with it!  I cut it out of Strathmore watercolor paper, then let it sit for a time while I tried to figure out what on earth to do with it!  Finally, I decided to just cover it with assorted colors of Ranger Distress Oxide inks!  In the usual manner, I smooshed one color of ink at a time onto my craft mat, then spritzed water onto it, and laid the bird die down into the ink.  Drying between each layer, I kept adding more color till I was satisfied with the result!

For the shadow box effect, I stamped the leaves from a retired Stampin Up set onto a panel of Stampin Up’s Crumb Cake card stock, then die-cut the top frame in Crumb Cake with my Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangle dies, added a layer of pink below it and adhered the layers with the die cut image in between using strips of foam tape to lift.  All were mounted onto a base card of Crumb Cake.  I surprised myself with this card and absolutely love how it turned out!
