PCS Avian Art Blog Hop

Hi Everyone, Welcome to the Paper Crafters Sampler blop hop. This month's issue is titled Avian Art, and this birdbath template is included in the issue.

If you are following the hop, you have arrived from Lisa's blog. Wasn't her version of the birdbath fabulous? Here is what I came up with.

Mom came over and helped me make the fabric bird a while back. He is a perfect addition to the birdbath.

I stamped grass with the Inspired by Nature set on the pedestal before assembling. I also created a morning glory vine by gluing Little Leaves die-cuts and adding Itty Bitty punch pack flowers with pearl jewel centers.

If you would like to sign up for this month's issue and get a copy of this template, go to Paper Crafters Sampler. Next along our little hop is our fearless leader, Melanie. OMGosh, you are going to love her interpretation! Enjoy the trip!

Stamps: Inspired by Nature; Paper: Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Old Olive, Greenhouse Gala DSP; Ink: Old Olive, Marina Mist; Accessories: Sponge, Deck the Halls fabric, Buttons, Embroidery floss, Itty Bitty punch pack, Pearl Jewels, Little Leaves die, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow is right - it looks so real! No, not the cute bird - but the bird bath, I thought it was granite and wondered how you got the stamped image so perfect. Silly me!

What a super project! Love the vines and grass at the base of the pedestal. Your bird showcases a great use of the fabric. You'd never know that it was designed with Christmas in mind.
