The Tale of the Bird Crazy Catastrophe...

Hi folks...let it not be said that everything always goes according to plan in the cubbyhole...this been around the block crafter has more than her fair share of  chucking projects in the bin moments but you can guarantee that if it does go pear shaped...you're going to hear about it. Let me introduce you to 3 very unhappy Bird Crazy friends...
and my disastrous attempt to create the circle halo effect I used on yesterday's card all because I didn't warm up my brain...make sure my ears were working properly or indeed give our beloved Professor my undivided attention when I watched his "HOW TO" video (sorry Mr H). And I know exactly where it all went pear shaped...it's important that you rub the glaze gently into the paper and because I used the textured side of the watercolor paper...this obviously didn't happen and that's why I ended up with colour where I didn't want it...
and a Bird Crazy Catastrophe...
So the moral of the story...don't do as I do...do as Mr H says and you'll be fine.

I'm probably one the few crafters on the planet who are not crazy about Tim's Crazy Birds. However, Your cards are so cute, that I might have to change my mind! :)

Despite your halos not being totally 'clean', I still think this is a fabulous card. Many thanks for getting back to me about the finish the glaze creates.

You've made Tim's crazy birds so cute and I love the sentiment too. I wasn't instantly drawn to these birds at first either but you've made a lovely card using these, despite the bit of ink getting where you didn't want it. If you hadn't mentioned your mistake, I would continued to think it was part of the plan.

I like this one Kath because it looks 'distressed' and if you hadn't mentioned it was an error I wouldn't have known, as others have said above. It was a serendipity card - will be posting this one to my Crazy Birds inspiration board: love it that much. Enjoy your new stash, and it looks like you had a fun Nanna week too! Karen x
