One of the bird images that I love is bird sitting on electricity cables, these are usually black silhouettes of birds but as black is a colour I don't have much of in my paper collection I decided to be bold and colourful as usual
I started by selecting my background paper, I then attempted to draw the birds myself but I just couldn't get the size of them right because they were either too small or two big. Thankfully my brain was working for once and I thought to use my rubberstamps of birds. I drew around the edge of the birds I wanted to use and stamped those on to paper and cut them out. I used black felt tip for the lines one this one...
and brown on this one... I choose the colour of the birds bassed on the colours I could see on the background paper. It needed a little something more so I used some postage stamp stickers around the edges. I finished it off with the postmark....
I did try decorating the backs of the postcards but it didn't look nice so I backed both the postcards on to coloured card which you can see a thin border around the edges of.
I had intended on making 4 of these but my sister turned up to go shopping so I only managed to make these 2 and decided I really need to post something as things have been too quiet here but life has been hectic with so much going on.
If you would like these postcards for yourself or a friend/family member
remember to shout
make my day
in the comment section so that I can tell the difference between who would like it
and who is leaving a comment
Here are some other things that I have made using these birds...
