Fun DIY Pigeon Card -Stay “coo” in the city

Hi, I’m Debbie Throckmorton, and I’m honored to be a guest designer for a new GDS release called Skyline.  This set doesn’t feature any of the cute and whimsical characters we are used to from GDS, BUT the cityscape and the brick wall provide the perfect backdrop for those characters.  And what better characters to feature in a city skyline, but the GDS Pigeons stamp set.


I did a bit of layering with this one using the cityscape as the background and then in the foreground gave my “coo” pigeons a brick wall to perch on.  I also stamped some extra bricks and cut them in 1 inch segments to create a column on either side of the card.  I raised the brick walls and the pigeons up with foam adhesive squares and added a little glossy accents to the pigeon dropping to make it look “fresh.”  And of course they all need to sunglasses; they’re “coo” after all!!

I colored all my images with copic markers:

Pigeons:  N6 N4 N2 N1 N0

Pigeon dropping: N4

Bricks:  E29 E09 E07 with E53 for the mortar between the bricks

Buildings:  T3-T7, E99 E97 E95 E53 E50 E37 E29 E09 E01

Sky:  B92 B21

Hope my creation makes you smile.  I know it made my day.  For now, stay tuned until 10/25/23, when I'll be back with another skyline creation (hint:  this one will feature a platform pop-up)
