Christmas Card with a Bird April 13, 2014

I really liked working with the image from Digistamps4Joy this month for the Christmas progressive challenge.


This image this month is adorable, and I colored it in using Prismacolor colored pencils, blending with the Gamsol technique.  I used Spellbinders dies to cut out the circle and the decorative frame.  The card background is embossed using cardstock from the DCWV The Luxury Stack Pearlized and Metallic stack and an Anna Griffin embossing folder.  The sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Simple Sayings set, stamped onto cardstock cut with Die-Namics Washi Tape dies and coordinating My Favorite Things background stamps.  I stamped the background with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and then went over that with the same color ink and an ink blending tool.
