MDUC #62 - Feathers, Fur or Fins!

** Oh wow! I was Features at Little Red Wagon for this project! Thanks Girlfriends :) **

Happy Sunday! It is time for another Magnolia Down Under Challenge! This week we have the theme of "Feathers, Fur or Fins" - so get out those cute animal stamps or get creative with embellishments !!

I was given this fabulous chipboard Birdhouse kit for my birthday which was just perfect for this challenge. I usually struggle with painting objects but I've discovered the Distress Crackle Paint - ohhhh.... it is so much fun! For this I've used "Old Paper".

I've used the little Coolabri birds from the Magnolia "Pets" collection from last year and coloured them with Copics. The little bird in the house is attached to a hat pin which is suspended from the top of the birdhouse with a burgandy pearl to dress it up.

I've added some pretty lace and burgandy ribbons, a pretty charm and some pearls and flowers to finish it off.

Ingredients for this project are:

Copic colours: R 35, 37, 39, G 40, 82, 85
Stamps: Small Colabries - Pets and Animals Collection 09, Magnoila
Papers: Xpress It Blending card for stamped images, Kraft for dragonflies
Embellishments: Lace, Charm and Flourish with a Bling - Pearls (available at Tickled Pink Stamps), Burgancy Ribbon 6mm and 20mm, Flowers (I am Roses), Bead and Hat pin (Spotlight)
Other: Twiddlybitz Small Birdhouse Kit, Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint "Old Paper", Distress ink "Old paper" to ink the edges, Magnolia Doo Hickey "Dragonfly" dies (available at Tickled Pink Stamps), Kaisercraft MDF circle for base.
