I started out colouring the bird with Copic Pens, just 4 colours Y17, B05, G05 and R29, I also coloured the black outline around the bird with the red. Once finished I cut the bird out, painted it with Mont Marte Glitter Paint, Gold on the yellow and Crystal on the Blue, this gave both texture and markings to the bird, left to dry and it warped perfectly, the bird has a sort of wave through it.

|Bling & Kindy Glitter on Bird|
When it was dry I added bling and kindy glitter to other features
|Stamp and glitter detail on background|
Because of the paint had warped and thickened the card, I only needed to add a strip of 3D tape vertically down the middle of the bird so it look like it was floating over the background

Hop over and see how many different ways this bird has be coloured.
