I Made It Awkward

I have another fun project today featuring the awesome dodo from Sweet Sentiment What's Up Dodo.  With the spring equinox tomorrow, I thought a card with our awkward dodo mom sitting atop her nest would be somehow appropriate.  Despite her slight oddness.  Granted, I think she's pretty darn awesome.

I watercolored this odd mama and her eggs with Karin Brushmarker Pro waterbrush markers, in warm grey, flesh pink, orange, black, and a mossy green.  To create the nest, I cut an egg die multiple times (only the bottom portion) from kraft card stock and layered.  I intentionally did not adhere the sides, only gluing the center portion.  I nestled our sweet mama dodo atop her nest of eggs on a tag that I then glued to my card base.  I very lightly inked the Earth Mandala Stencil onto the card background.  I stamped the sentiment, ripped the right edge and added a few staples to the left, then mounted it on top of the rest.  Doesn't she just make you giggle?
