Bird of the Mountain Die Set

The small Moussier's redstarts are an endemic resident breeder in the Atlas Mountains of northwest Africa. Inspired by these lovely redstarts, this die set will allow you to create a beautiful layered paper bird in just a few steps. Pair it with some leaves or branches and give your bird a special place to sit!

I love playing with dies like this as it allows you to experiment with all sorts of inks, paper and Mixed Media. Let's dive right into today's projects!

The branches leaves from Orange Blossom Die Set are in perfect proportion with the bird.  You can see the blotchy stripes of the leaves from the markers. I thought they look kind of cool!

Altenew-Bird of the Mountain Die Set-Exuberant Paper Pack-Gradient Cardstock Set - Summer Afternoon -001I took advantage of the largest bird die and made the die cut with the yellow stripe paper.
