Bird Needs More Diet Pop

…cans that is.
Bird Needs More Diet Pop Cans:

Pop can after CuttleBug Embossing and Painting:

Finished Frame:

Back of the Frame (so that you can see the Root Beer can):

Alright I’ll admit I must still be on a Green kick - but this card does not have any paint resist - that’s good right?

I am in need of a few Thank You cards for Easter - This little birdie is on it’s way to my Aunt to thank her for hosting Easter Dinner for the family.

The frame and detail piece on the right are made from a pop can. The background is wrinkle free distress and the bird was stamped on a transparency sheet. The bird was colored on the backside with Sharpies and then I used an opaque white pen over the portions that were colored.

Hmmm what else to do with diet pop cans? Green is good right?

The Stuff:
Stamps - Urban Tapestry (Tim Holtz); Short and Sweet (SU)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze (SU)
Ink - Black Stazon; Vintage Photo, Broken China, Fired Brick Distressed Ink (Tim Holtz - Ranger)
Other - Diet pop can, acrylic paint, Metallic Rub color (Craf-T Products), CuttleBug embossing folders, Sharpies, White Writer, Transparency
