Some more quirky cuteness . . . with wings

You might remember my exciting news from a couple of weeks ago ...
I am Guest Designer on the Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog for the month of June.


This is my 2nd project to share and this time my Quirky Thing With Wings is the adorable Mini Bird Mummy digital stamp from Limited Runs Digital Stamps (one of the generous sponsors this month) to make an action wobbler card
It makes for a quirky mix of cuteness, spookiness and interactive fun.

I printed the image on X-Press It blending card, heat set, coloured with Copic markers, fussy cut then went around the edges with a Memento marker.  I added a luscious coating of Glossy Accents to the eyes, using my piercing tool to drag it out to all the corners and edges, then left it to dry overnight.

 The "BOO" sentiment was cut from black cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo and the "untitled" font.  These were coated with a thick layer of Glossy Accents and left to dry overnight.

I added a panel of embossed patterned paper to a 6 1/2" tall x 6" wide card base.  The spooky trees add great texture and the shine catches the light.

I placed pairs of spooky eyes in to the gaps, peeking out from between the branches.

I took an Action Wobbler mechanism and placed it under my bird, working out where it balanced evenly, then removed the backing tape and adhered the top of the mechanism to the back of the bird.  I peeled of the backing from the bottom of the mechanism and adhered the wobbling bird to the front of the card, pushing it down firmly.  This pic shows the dimension of the mechanism.


Here is a short video showing the cool wobbler action of my quirky thing with wings.
