I was on a mission this summer to find these wooden birds at Michaels and finally found them at a Michaels in Madison. Woo hoo!
I stamped a Hero Arts background stamp in Versamark Ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. You could also use white embossing powder with this technique. I then heat set the powder carefully so the wood didn't scorch. Once the powder and wood cooled, I rubbed various colors of Gelatos over the embossing and wood and took a paper towel to rub the Gelatos off the embossing and smooth out the color. Added bling for the eye and done. This was a fun project to make and you could change it up with various background stamps and different colors of Gelatos.
