3D Masculine project using Australian Birds

Hi everyone. We are showcasing Masculine projects this week at Inspired by Stamping and I have come up with a 3D project to share with you.

I must admit I was quite stuck as I rarely do masculine cards let alone 3D projects. Great way to get me out of my comfort zone!!

I have created a watercoloured kookaburra and then framed it.

I started by embossing my kookaburra with black powder onto watercolour paper and using SU! inks, used a brush to add my colour.

I dried the paint between washes to create different layers of colour.

I really had fun making this little fella and it would be very easy to create a gift box to pop the frame into.

I would like to enter my 'Kookie' into the following challenges -

Uniko - Things with Wings
The Crafter's Cafe - Animal Antics

Thanks so much for looking xx
