It's also for the CCEE Stampers; Frances tells us that tomorrow is Bow Tie Day, and asks us to include any type of bow on our cards. Well, I bought this die set primarily for a moustache card last year, but since it included a bow tie, why not use it!!
Bird Crazy, stamped on a book page and coloured with pencils. Also stamped on white card, which was stamped with Aida Cloth in Forest Moss and sponged a little, then I added the fussy-cut bird.
For the main layer, I used TLC438 Metal Foil Tape Art, instructions in link. I used assorted dies, and drywall mesh under the foil, then used black paint, and a tracing wheel for more texture.
I used the Retro Masculine dies from IO for hat, glasses and bow tie. Because I cut the glasses from a tomato paste tube, they were slightly flexible and I was able to make them a perfect fit, then filling them with Glossy Accents. Hello (SU word die) is also cut from the tomato paste tube. I did the hat with faux suede, black card distressed and pulled apart.

Oh your bird is so adorable and very dapper indeed with his bow tie. I love the metal foil tape art that you created! This is so amazing and I am sure IRL it is even more outstanding! And those glasses are such a fun addition to your TH bird. Just too cute. Thank you for creating such a fun card for my Make it Metal challenge.

Sabrina, you really nailed this metal challenge with your crazy bird. I've seen him wear many hats, but those glasses are the best. Love your bg, as usual. The combination of the gold and silver really looks great. Cool card. TFS
