Birds of a Feather

I ordered the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy set along with the dies. When they arrived I wondered what the heck I was going to do with them!

Then a colleague of mine was named to the 100 Great Iowa Nurses! Well Freddie is a one of a kind 'bird'! He marches to his own drummer. He never disappoints on holidays - dressing with flair to match the occasion! He is a wonderful nurse and I am proud to call him friend!

The bird stamps caaaww-caaaww'd at me to use them! This little guy is a perfect homage to Freddie! I've seen him in a clown costume, over-the-top Mardi Gras fashions, he has sported amethyst broaches, and the full set of Pac-Man lapel pins (all at the same time). So I colored this guy with Brushos in an appropriately flamboyant Freddie style and gave him a splatter paint wing!

So now I am thinking I'm going to find other bird related reasons to use the rest of the set of stamps...cuz this guy was fun to make!
