Life is better at the beach

Hello everyone!
Today starts our new challenge at Dream Factory
The movie for this month is:

The Birds
Keyword: Birds ...funny, quirky, cheeky, cute or not - no matter what they look like! 

You'd think I don't have any other stamps than Katzelkraft ...
I have, but no matter for which challenge, the ones from Katzelkraft always magically attract me! I almost have to fight not to stamp them on every card! - I tell you, I am addicted to them!
Our theme is birds, so no chance getting past the feathered things!

I stamped the birds, palm tree, coconuts and sun, colored with alcohol markers and fussy cut everything. I turned the birds' eyes into sunglasses.
The stenciled background had been waiting on my craft table for a while, I just sponged it with some more blue Distress Oxide to add to the vacation feel. For the beach, I used sandpaper and pasted all the prepared pieces onto it. I put a few shadows here and there with alcohol markers - very carefully so as not to roughen up the tips! Lastly, the sentiment and the card was done!

Linked up with:
Paper Shelter - Animals
Passion for Markers - Something beginning whit "B" (Birds and Beach)
Stamping Sensations - Stamp of the moment (I have so many favorite stamps, but usually the ones from Katzelkraft win! So no exception for today's card, the birds are one of my favorites!)
