I decided to use a Cardinal inside the birdbath, because that is one of my favorite birds. We have a couple that frequent our backyard and they are so fascinating to watch and beautiful to listen to. The Cardinal is cut from kraft and glittery red paper. I added the eye, beak, and wings with black Stickles.
I cut the birdbath out of chipboard and added wrinkled tissue paper as well as a variety of blue and black inks to get the look I was going for. It is hard to see in the photos, but inside the birdbath I used Glossy Accents, which gives the look of water. I added branches that had buds and added tissue paper blossoms for more color and dimension.
Butterflies are another beautiful sign of Spring, so I added a couple of butterflies and embellished them with Stickles, to add a little extra bling.
