Winter Cardinal Video and Tutorial

Hello there! Today's card features my new set, Peace and Joy, Before I get to the details of my card, I want to tell you that I have a new post up on the CardMaker Magazine blog with Christmas tags made from scraps. You can find it here.

Here is the video I made to show you how to create this card. If you prefer to watch directly at Youtube, just click here

Trim white cardstock to 4 inches squares and stamp the cardinal image, from Peace and Joy, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Begin color coloring with Spectrum Noir marker CR8.

Fill in the remaining open areas using CR10.

Add some shading with BG6.

Blend out from the previous color with BG4.

Use the same markers for the beak.

Use BG6 for the bird legs, along the center line of the leaves and along the bottom of the branch. Fill in the berries with CR11.

Fill in the branch with GB8.

Fill in the leaves with DG3, then use the blender pen to push in some highlights.

Stamp the cardinal image onto scrap paper and cut out with scissor. Use repositionalbe tape and adhere over the original image to mask.

Tear a sticky note and place over the corner of the cardstock, then sponge over the edge using Gina K Moonlit Fog ink.

Add a second mask on the right side and sponge again.

Reposition the second mask to higher on the cardstock and sponge again.

Reposition on more time and sponge again.

Remove the sticky notes and sponge around the edges of the cardstock.

Remove the bird mask.

Stamp the Joy and 'Tis the Season sentiments, also from Peace and Joy, using Gina K Black Onyx ink.

Add some decorative scoring to the lower left and upper right corners of the cardsotck, then adhere to a piece of black cardstock, trimmed slightly larger than the image layer. Adhere both to a 5 inch square Moonlit Fog card base.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day is wonderful!!
