For a sense of scale, the bird is about 1 1/4" tall. I had no idea how Terrie had gotten the feather and eye details on her bird, but I drew them in kind of firmly with a ball point pen and it left just enough indentation.
I like scallop borders and made the one at the bottom first. It's fine but a bit heavy and dark. It's difficult to cut out small interior areas, so I knew I'd make a mess of trying to cut out the insides of each scallop. Then I got smarter and made the one at top right. I cut a U several times into a strip of foam, then added just a straight piece for the base. I made no attempt to have the scallops connect with the base and like how airy it is.
The little black dots were make by dumping out the 1/8" punch I'd been using to make all those small holes in other stamps and using the teeny weeny punched out part. Very futzy to pick up an 1/8" circle of foam, remove the paper backing, then stick it inside a fairly small loop.
Thanks for the motivation, Terrie!
