They say things come in 3s.....

....and it's certainly true of these Cricut bird houses. This is the 3rd and final one that I made on Sunday while hanging out with my friend Hels. This is also the last one that was cut using the original design - I have adjusted it again today, hopefully I can show the new design on here in the next few days!

Like the "Time" themed one that I made for Hels' Sunday Stamper challenge, this one has also been painted with acrylic paint applied with a moist baby wipe, and then stamped with versafine ink. The moon on one side is simply the circle cut out from the front of the bird house, with some shading applied on one edge. Click on an image for a larger view.

Hey, Dan!

Love the birdhouses, especially the first ones with the scalloped roofs. I think it might be the contrast between the deep blue color and the ivory colored clocks that's doing it for me. I love the color of these most recent ones as well. Isn't it same color as the first ones you posted ? Have you thought about doing cylinder shaped birdhouses?

By the way, it's great to have you back on-line!

Hugs!

Well, duh! You must think I'm a total doofuss! I went back and looked at your blog for the last three days and the first bird houses are orange not blue! What was I looking at! Anyway . . . love what you're doing with the bird houses, and I love the blue color. How about trying it with the contrasting clocks with the ivory backgrounds?

Again,Hugs!

I love the bird houses, they are so artistic. Makes me want to make some. They would make a cute container for Jelly beans.
