Old Bird

The challenge at The Male Room is birds.  This really had me digging through my stamps since I don't do birds very often let alone a masculine version.

I also used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! for my starting point.

I used a Core'dinations yellow card base, love the texture.  Stamped some stripes in black ink on the red fishtail tag using my MISTI.  Die cut the kraft tag with Tim Holtz Tiny Tags die, added some washi tape and the bird panel, then stamped the sentiment in black.  Tied some black and white baker's twine on top.  The bird was colored with Prismacolor Markers.

Thanks for taking a closer look!
