Hey there! 

I'm back on the Bellarific blog today with something a little different for this week's Scenic Saturday card. By now I'm sure most of you are familiar with the colored in scenes that I create on most of my cards. I do that because I love telling stories with my stamps. Creating worlds and various scenarios for all my little stamped characters brings me so much joy. Sometimes though a stamp comes along that sparks a story which doesn't require all the bells and whistles, instead all it needs is just one or two well placed embellishments to get its message across. The Oddball Birds set was one of those sets for me and the attitude of this Oddball Bird immediately had me reaching for some darker kraft card stock to color on, all so that I could splash a bit of white mister spray on it mimicking a bit of birdie dookie beneath him. The computer generated sentiment says, 'sorry' but by the look on his face I gotta think it should be, 'sorry, not sorry' LOL! For a subtle finishing touch on this clean and simple card I also stamped the branch using kraft colored ink on my white card base so that it would line up and complete the image when the main panel was added to the card front. 

Alright friends, the next time you have occasion to send an apology card I hope you think of this crazy little Oddball Bird and have some fun with it too. It is hard to stay mad when you are laughing, right?
