Sarcastic Parrot

 Morning and I have a bottle tag to share today-The stamped image is Parrot from Katzelkraft watercoloured with my paints from Art by Marlene .The  stamped sentiment which seemed to give a sarcastic match to the Parrots expression was a craft mag freebie and the backgrounds were from a previous stencilling project and I just sprayed the used stencil with water and placed face down on card so you got the negative stencil, the scalloped die was from Creative Dies.

Perhaps the parrot was celebrating a little too much with the wine! The wonder wonder he is currently celebrating is how he got out of his cage and into the wine! LOL Super cute! Thank you for sharing this with us at 2CCC and I hope you'll be back soon with your next critter creation!

Fabulous project Carol, your water colours look gorgeous and is a perfect match to your backing paper. That parrot looks a handful, I think he has quite the attitude.
