Skipping Tweet Birds

Hi ! What a lovely start to the week. Loved Jenny's bloke card and a day off too! Back to work today, but it's made easier with a few cute birds.
I've made 2 projects using the 'So Tweet'
When I saw those 2 birds looking at each other in the middle, I knew they were really holding a skipping rope in their beaks! You can see it? right?!

I've kept it really CAS (Clean and simple)- the birds could be flying whilst doing the twine rope or on the ground. I've coloured in the birds to resemble no species in particular, although the skipping bird does remind me of a robin!

For the sentiment, I've taken it from 'The Big, The Bold and Friends

 For my second project- it was going well to begin with..I've used the stamp Mini Scenery: Multifaceted
I heat embossed the stamp with white embossing powder
I began colouring in with alcohol markers and kept the look very monochromatic. To help the faceted look, keep some of the areas white and try not to equally space the colours. You're looking for random!

 I did really well with the colouring and left it alone after putting the card together. When I came back the next morning, a fresh eye told me that there was one space too many white. I grabbed what I thought was that colour and then realised it was the wrong one!
Too late.
It kind of ties the colour from the bird in with the background, but it certainly bugs me!
I love the stamp set, which gives you options to dress up the birds. I thought he looked really cool with a hat. The bird and hat are mounted with 3D foam and I just love the quirky 'love' card perfectly suited for a bloke.
Change it up with a more feminine colour scheme, add a lightly different sentiment and you've a fun design great for any occasion!
Do look more closely at this set, it's great for so many different occasions and the birds are brilliant fun to colour in.

Hope you have a wonderful week,
