Blue Bird of Happiness

I am in love with this bird stamp and I have only used the one bird - there are three more to use.  The stamp is by Dina Wakely for Ranger.  It is called Scribbly Birds.

On Sunday I shared a canvas I made with the bird and one of the sentiments, but there was this saying going through my head when I painted the bird blue - blue bird of happiness.  Inside the sentiment says "so blank blank blank be happy".  I think I will add happy valentine's day.  I think it would make a few people smile.

Did you notice his/her heart is broken?  I have never had my texture paste do that before.  Maybe there is something very symbolic in this.  The card front is made on mixed media paper with layers of gelatos, acrylic paint, texture paste, distress ink, regular ink, gel medium, and gessoed dictionary pages.

I am going to enter this in the weekly challenge on Monday's Simon Says Stamp.  The challenge is "H is for" - well for me it could be happiness or for those three little red hearts.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoying my humor - hey another H.

Oh! I just noticed the heart cracks. Oh dear, he is happy but has a broken heart. He sure does make me smile though. Anyone is lucky to get this card! Awesome job! Hugs! ~Niki
