House of Cards September Challenge

I guess this means that summer is over. It's September and you know what that means, it's time for another monthly challenge at House of Cards

Here's the inspiration

Add a Bird and/or Colors

Here's my card

Don't you just love the Tim Holtz' crazy birds? This bird is from the Tim Holtz Collection Stamps/Stencil Mixed Media 8. I coloured him in with copics, close to the colours of this month's challenge. I fussy-cut him out, added glossy accents to his eye and popped him up with dimensionals. To add the lime green colour from the challenge, I inked up the background with twisted citron distress ink in a random fashion with an ink blending tool. The sentiment is stamped from Lawn Fawn's Chit Chat stamp set, fussy cut and adhered to the card.
