Hi once again. I had some images colored up and with so much flurry going on around here, I finally got a chance AND the motivation, to get these images onto cards. This one was colored back during the summer while I was lolling around in the recliner. As you may have noticed if you visit here much, I LOVE anything with a cardinal. A friend had this lovely Northwoods stamp, showed me a card, and well, you can guess the rest of the story. This is another easy image to color...the hardest part is trying to shade my little red guy, cause he's so small. The Red copic color family is a hard color range for me to work with - it tends to bleed for me, as I have a somewhat 'heavy' hand. I also used some Spica glitter pens on the pine needles and ribbons. Diecut with S/B deckled rectangle. Green glitter mat was diecut with a larger size of the same set. Interior part (covered by the image) was cut out with a smaller die, to save weight. The bonus is that I now have that piece to use elsewhere. The silver glitter paper was just trimmed out to fit the cardbase. Ah, now for the snippets - that was the red glitter strips. (Saved from cutting out the inside of a die used in another project, and Voila, here it gets repurposed.)The strips are adhered down top & bottom, but do not run the width of the image. This glitter paper is quite thick, so would make the card entirely too bulky (at least for mailing). I have a few more of these images colored, so I have to think of some other designs to use 'em up! Also going to take Red over to Pixie's Playground since it just barely qualifies for the Snippets Challenge and then onto to Rudolph Day. Someone said (I'll call no names), that my eggnog needed something else, so maybe I'll add a warming ingredient. Whatta you think? Com' on along, and join in the Christmas fun. Cheers!
