Purple birdie


The eye on this little guy is my fave.

Supplies and notes:

  • Dina Wakley birdie stamped in MementoLuxe in black
  • Shimmery watercolors... I tried to get a good pic of this... 
  • Bird's eye painted with DecoArt metallic paint in Espresso then dotted with Glossy Accents... it looks so real!  (Just the eye... zoom in, might be worth it...)
  • Library catalog card edged with Faber Castell Texture Paste in Gold
I'm entering this relatively CAS card into the following:


  1. So very cool, Mimi!! Love your design. That eye does look real! :) And the gold around the edges is fantastic. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  2. A beautiful CAS card. The bird is so sweet, a super subject for our Nature theme thank you for joining us again at Try it on Tuesdays.

  3. Love that textured gold border and the beautiful bird! Great job on the eye, Mimi! It's hard to get those eyes just right! Thanks for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!
