Crazy for Crazy Birds

I absolutely love the Crazy Bird stamp set from Tim Holtz.  You can do so many things with this set from card making to journals, to painting them onto tiles. You are only limited by your own imagination.  These stampsets are selling like crazy so if you see one you better buy it or they will sell out.

I bought these 4x4 tiles at Lowes for $3.97 for a set of 9. I have only used 4 out of the set. I cleaned the tile with  90% alcohol front and back before doing anything at all. I then put some tissue paper down to help give my tile some grip before painting. I painted and stamped my background then I stamped the image with Versamark ink then I stamped another bird onto watercolor paper and colored it with watercolor markers. I glued the paper on top of the image to give it a raised surface and highlighted the image with a brown pen. I then applied some water proof Mod Podge on all the tiles so they could be used a coaster or just as a decoration, I also backed each tile with cork so it would not scratch any surface. I had so much fun making these crazy birds that I will be making more of them.  TFL!
