Crazy birds


I hope this week started on a fabulous note for you. You know how you see a design or pattern and it gets stuck in your head for a long time. This happened with a comic book style card I saw long ago. Here's my take on it:

I started with creating some blocks and stamping 3 birds randomly. Then I drew some patterns here and there, mainly speech bubbles.

I then used TouchNew alcohol markers to colour everything.

Finally, with Sakura Micron pens, 02 and 08, I added details like polka dots and lines.

I am in love with how it turned out.
Off to my second card: I made this one pretty simple. I turned the cute little bird into a unicorn.

The sentiment is handwritten. I used Fevicryl 3D liner to draw the clouds. What's magical without glitter!

For the rainbow clouds, I actually cut a scrap paper in this design, and used it as a mask/stencil.

I hope you like my effort.

Thanks for stooping by. Have a nice day.

1. Twofer card challenge: I used to have birds as pets. It was long ago and I don't know the breed but I remembered they changed the colour of their wings. It was a pretty red in summers. :)


  1. Wow, what stunning designs and attention to detail, Sweety! I've never "met" a real-life cartoonist before, but you certainly are one! That takes an enormous amount of talent, drawing, and coloring skills! And I love how you turned your crazy bird into a unicorn with that fabulous imagination of yours! Thank you for joining us in Twofer Card Challenge #4! I hope to see you again next month! (A gentle reminder to take a photo of both your cards together for the linky. :) Hugs, Darnell

    1. OMG that's such a fabulous compliment. Thank you so much Darnell. Your comment made my day :) Sorry, next time, I'll take a pic of the two cards together. I have already posted one to a friend.

  2. Fantastic job on your comic style card! Your colors, cross hatching and speech bubbles are wonderful! I love how you kicked the "crazy" in crazy bird up a notch giving it a unicorn horn! Such fun cards! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

    1. Thank you Kara. :) Your kind words mean a lot.

  3. Brilliant detailing on your first card, Sweetie ... you captured the comic book style wonderfully with your freehand dots, cross hatching and bubbles ... a perfect background for those crazy birds! Your unicorn bird is an absolute hoot ... so much fun ... and fabulous against the dreamy rainbow clouds! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Anita :)

    1. Yay! I am so glad you liked it Anita :) Thank you for your sweet words.
