Christmas Cardinal

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I've been having a great time visiting with friends from out of town. Today's card uses a combination of images from this month's GKD release.

First I stamped a bird, from Winter Birds and colored with Copics, starting with R02.

Added R05.

Added R08, shading at the edges, then added some sweeping lines in the lighter areas, to add some texture.

Added R89 to the wing.

Added R27.

Added R24.

Filled in with R00.

I stamped the music notes image from Lovely Labels 2 and then made a mask to expose the center, using scratch paper and circle Nestabilities.

I adhered the mask with re-positionable tape and sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink.

Then sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves.

I used the tree, from Fanciful Fall and stamped some background foliage with Memento Bamboo Leaves.

I cut out the bird and adhered it to the Labels background, using Pop Dots. The sentiment is from Labeled With Love. I layered with Pure Luxury Lipstick Red and Black Onyx and the card base is Fresh Asparagus.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a fantastic day!

So pretty -- love the tree you used in the background! I hear a lot of birds singing here and see a lot of little brown birds, but no cardinals!!
