Must Have Monday
When it comes to stamping, we all bring our own style and taste to the party. This means we all have different must have items on our Wish Lists. I'll be the first to admit that mine is extensive!
Bird Banter made my list for a variety of reasons, from seeing it on OnStage presented by the fabulous Brian King to simply the adorable variety of birds and silly sentiments. The fact it is a must have is due to growing up in a house with five parrots and two love birds.
I knew I wanted to highlight this set, but I wasn't sure which bird(s) to use. I decided on the cockatoo since they are my favorite, when I got to questioning why it was my fave. After all, I had never owned a cockatoo. Then it hit me: it was the dancing bird!
While George Harrison didn't write the song, the former Beatle's cover of Got My Mind Set on You is the most memorable. And the above video of him chillin in the den with a variety of dancing objects (and a squirrel which can play a mean flute) has stuck in my head (I mean, it came out when I was 5!). The dancing cockatoo was my favorite part and created a love for this particular breed.
The Finished Project
Today's card is fully inspired by and based on that music video. I used Bird Banter for my Cockatoo, as well as the guitar from the FREE Sale-A-Bration offering Epic Celebration. For my homage to the den, I used our Wood Textures DSP. For a complete list of products, please head on down to the end of this post!
