The Bird is the Word -Take a Word 2 Angel

Marie's word of inspiration for this week is Angel, so here are my 2 guardian angels. As soon as I started colouring my birds I had an image of Peter Griffin singing Surfin Bird, so if I had to have this, here you are too, say thank you to You Tube
I've inked and stamped my canvas, then bleached certain areas -  I love doing this 'cos you never know how it's going to end up.
My 2 guardian angels are from the Octopode factory. Just about everything has been coloured in with H2O's today. I'd forgoten how nice these are to us, so I sat there, stuck my tongue out and painted :o). Then along came surfin bird Aaaaagh......
My tree,  houses,  and bird are all from Art From The Heart, while the beautiful Marci is by Stampotique, and I got her from Happy Daze.
 If you look really carefully you can see my writing around the tree - now you know why I rubber stamp, I never learned to do joined up writing... :o)
Thanks for looking, enjoy what left of the weekend, and remember..... everyone's talking about the bird, the bird, bird, bird is the word!

  1. I love it! Everybody's heard about the bird. The bird is the word. Thanks for the blast from the past. When I was a kid I had that song, along with such classics as Purple People Eater and My Dingaling on a K-Tel album called Goofy Greats. We are very highbrow in our entertainment choices in the colonies......

    PS Great card! I love that scene you've created with all those wonderful stamps.
