Love Joy Fun

It now time for Scrapy Land challenge #35 to start and this challenges is ANYTHING GOES. All Scrapy Land challenge are bi-weekly so the challenge will end on February 16, 2016. You have a chance to win a $15.00 gift card to Scrapy Land store. Scrapy Land has 40 brands of dies. You can see them here. Please link your project back to this Scrapy Land Challenge Blog. It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brand of dies used in your project. I hope you enjoy my project. I’m trying to do some different things this year.
This is a side view. Trying to show you that everything is dimensional. There is a small story behind this piece of wood and I do have several pieces to work with and as anything else found it in my stash and found some other stuff. Hey!!! My son Kurt when he was around 17 years old (now he is in his 40’s) he worked at a place that made all kinds of things with different woods ANYWAY he would bring home some really interesting pieces of wood and this is one of the woods. It is about 3/4” thick. I left it the color it was did not stain it. 
The paper I used is called X-Press it blending paper. I stamped all the images with Memento tuxedo black ink.
The die set is from Sizzix framelits Tim Holtz Alterations #660954.
The stamp set is called  Tim Holtz Collection Stamper Anonymous Bird Crazy CMS212. 
Creative Expression by Sue Wilson Fern Trio and Petite Vinery. Memory Box Butterfly Delight.
These are the copic markers I used to color the images.
I want to show you how different the sides are on the wood. It is so amazing how the shape of the wood formed thought out the years. What it looks like to me is a slice off of a stump.
These birds are so much fun, I really can not wait to do some more things with them. I cut them out with the die cuts and I hope you can tell I cut their eyes, wings and beaks also and raise them up.
The clay words LOVE, JOY and FUN are some clay I played around with. I can not tell you how many years ago. I did use some distress ink color vintage photo to bring the letters out more. Added some diamond Glaze from Judi Kins.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Looking forward to see your card in the challenge. So that means it is your turn.

Pat this absolutely gorgeous! I love the shape and color of the piece of wood your son brought home for you to play with! The dies you used for this beautiful project are awesome! I love all the detail you have on this beauty!

*Vicki* said...

What a fun idea to add these crazy birds to your piece of wood! Love the added dimension that the flowers bring to it!! :)

For my video about the dies with the painters tape sticking. I always rub it over my skin to take off some of the "stickiness", but when it gets run through the die machine, it sometimes get "tacked" back down, so I was just trying to warn people to not just go and "rip off" the tape after it's been through the die machine & carefully pull it off is all. :) Thanks for watching my video and leaving your comments!! HUGS
