Pensive Bluebird


Less Is More is another challenge that I haven't played along with in a while so I thought I'd join in their latest - a one layer card with the subject of birds.  I had a completely different card to start with but couldn't quite make it work so I started again and ended up with this which uses a pensive little bird from Paper Smooches' Forest Whimsy which I was lucky enough to win because I used the phrase "Whoop whoop" in my comment!  I knew that would come in handy one of these days...   :)
Cardstock:  (White) Gina K
Stamps:  (Bird from Forest Whimsy) Paper Smooches, (Sentiment from Everyday Sayings) Hero Arts
Ink:  (Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko

Copics:  Y17, BG01, BG05

I thought that was so funny when I read the write up about the whoop whoop! You go girl! Lovely make from that set! Very CAS and sometimes Less is More!

Thanks so much

Very nice card. The bird is great and I like the bleu colour in combination with white.

Well now, darnit, I don't have any phrases that are going to win me anything...unless there's going to be an "F bomb" prize some day ;) lol
The bird is totally pensive - great title! - and the stark white space seems to emphasize how lonely the birdie is without his friend. Boy, TGIF, now I'm getting all maudlin!
Oh, and btw, as to what crafts don't I do? Knit (rather stab out my eyeballs) and basket weaving. But I'm not ruling out the basket weaving ;) Especially if it's underwater...

Whoop whoop! This is a great card, Jen. :P So perfectly clean and simple, and sweet.

Perfect one layer, Jen! And who knew (well, except you, I guess) that whoop, whoop = free stamps! :P

Oh this is perfect Jen! I have a thing about cards featuring a sentiment with a bird perched on it!
