Created an Angry Bird using Wacom Bamboo Tablet

Angry Bird

For my birthday, my wonderful hubby got me a Wacom Bamboo Tablet, so I can draw my own images easily.  In the photo above, you can see the tablet in the background.

To create this card, first I did a search on youtube to find out how to draw the bird.  The tutorial I used is here.  Like the lady in the tutorial, I used Inkscape to draw the bird. Once I was finished with the bird, I imported it to my Silhouette Studio software, where I traced it and then set the cut lines. 

To create the sling shot, I used the font tool and chose the letter "Y" in Silhouette Studio, then I filled it a "wood" pattern.  I created the tree using an existing file I had purchased from SIlhouette, it contained 4 leaves and some limbs.  To create the trunk, I used the rectangle tool.  The grass was also created using pre-purchased files from the Silhouette Online Store.

I cut "Happy New Year" using vinyl.  Sooo easy to put on the card!

I tried to follow the first scene in the Angry Birds game - and I think it turned out alright.  My goal was to draw and cut the bird, so mission accomplished!
