You're a Rare Bird

ETA (3/8/17) So proud to announce that my card was chosen as a Top Pick at Great Impressions this month!  Thank you!

Hello!  I have a card to share for the Great Impressions sketch challenge this month. 

I colored my parrots with alcohol markers.  I tried several color combinations before I came up with this one.  I used papers from one of my first patterned paper purchases. Inside, I stamped, "You are a Rare Bird."

Supplies: Great Impressions Parrots #G370S, You are a Rare Bird #E892S, Memento and Versafine black inkpads, Spectrum Noir markers (and one copic), Nuvo Crystal drops, DCWV Citrus Matstack,  Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies

Thanks so much for stopping by!  


  1. oh, I love it, I love it. You picked a great colour combination. Love your stamp. Terrific card!

  2. oh, I really like these birds and especially the way you colored them! Great design with the diagonal dsp and wonky stitched dies!

  3. Fun and vibrant. Love the colour combination and how you have laid out your card x

  4. Your birds are colored so beautifully here Heidi! Love the stunning layout and what a great sentiment to put on the inside too! :) Hugs & Smiles - *Vicki*

  5. Oh Heidi, I unpacked my sewing machine just last week. You make me want to get in there and sew on a card. This is an amazing card!!! What do I like? I'm nuts for diagonal lines, your coloring is spot on, and color choices perfect. The stitching is just another plus.

    I really like the stamp. I'm not going to go out and buy it or anything - lol, but who makes this stamp. If you knew me better, you would know that this is a dangerous question as I just got 2 fun stamps in from High Hopes yesterday. I should not be asking. . .

  6. Your card is so pretty and cute. I love the birds and you have colored them perfectly.

  7. What a great colorful card! Love your coloring job!

  8. how fun, great coloring and I love that you used an old paper pack, and it still looks great today, neat background!

  9. Gorgeous! Your coloring of the birds is stunning! Amazing work! Thank you for joining our Great Impressions Sketch Challenge this month.
