Cardinal Joy




Hi Everyone!  This card is for a November Featured Stamper - Ally (aka thecircleguru). Her gallery is filled with so many beautiful and heartfelt creations - but my heart skipped a beat when I saw this one: { Ally’s Beautiful Cardinal Peace & Joy Card }

The SU! Bird image was stamped in a light color (Daffodil Delight) just as an outline and guide, so all areas could be colored OVER (no black outlines, no black shadows from the stamp, etc.) The bird, leaves and berries were colored using Copics, then the image was fussy-cut, and mounted/popped over the Memory Box die-cut pine leaves. The Sentiment was stamped on the oval die-cut, then everything was mounted over the base panel.

Copic markers used:
Leaves - YG92 & YG97
Cardinal - YR01, R27, R29, R46; E07, E77 & C10

Thanks everyone for taking a look.
Hugs and Blessings,
Audrey
