Crazy In Love with DIY Action Wobble

Welcome to the Topflight Stamps Blog! CraftyPaws here with a fun, interactive Valentines card. This card was inspired by the Beyonce song, "Crazy in Love" and the silly heart-shaped bird with the spiraling eyes from the Carabelle-Studio "3 Oiseaux" stamp set that made me think of the all-encompassing crazy feeling of falling in love. 

I Copic colored up the bird in a bright red and then added a coating of Glossy Accents over the beak, claws and eyes for some shine. I also added some flecks with a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen to make the feathers pop. Then I thought I could emphasize that mad, unstable feeling of falling in love by attaching the bird to an action wobble (how to make a DIY action wobble in my blog linked below).

I wanted a Valentines themed background, but I didn't want to distract from the crazy, love-sick bird, so I used three of the stamps from the Carabelle-Studio Follow Your Heart stamp set but did not add any color to them. Instead, I added some subtle dimension and shine to parts of these background images using a Tsukineko VersaMarker and clear embossing powder for some heat embossing. 

For finishing touches, I inked the edges of the card front with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot, glued on a handful of sequins topped with Ebony glitter glue for sparkle and interest, and I even splattered on some diluted black acrylic paint for a light grungy look.

Thanks so much for joining me today here at Topflight Stamps! If you'd like more details about how to make a DIY action wobble or any of the products I used for this card, please visit me at my CraftyPaws Blog HERE.
