Crazy birds with Distress reinkers

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: things with wings.
The CAS Colours & Sketches challenge is a sketch, so I combined both to make this card.

I used the Tim Holtz bird crazy and stamped it with SSS intense black onto hotpressed  watercolor paper (140lbs from Schut) and the used the left over Distress reinkers on my palette from the milky way card/video.

I mixed up the purple with wilted violet, picked raspberry and I think it was blueprint sketch or mermaid lagoon, no labels ;-) I wanted the bird to match the cardbase a little but then also added wacky colors to reinforce the "crazy".

I thought the sentiment goes perfectly with the loopy eyes and it's from Impression Obsession (c17150) I stamped it with Versamark and  heat embossed it with Wow! opaque bright white.

U used a colored panel  to cover the cardbase, it was too thin as a cardbase and quite floppy, I used the same cardstock for the sentiment strip, I raised it with foamtape. the watercolor panel I've adhered it taperunner.
