I've had these cards done for a while, but I've been too busy to get them photographed and posted here.
I had a lot of fun coloring this image with ProMarkers and then using two non-traditional colors for my card bases.
This is a bad photo - taken at an angle and hard to look at - but I was trying to capture some of the sparkle in the sentiment on the front of the card. It is so pretty IRL. I have some embossing powder that is a silver sparkle, and I often use it on Christmas cards.
I only used two shades of turquoise and two shades of purple to color the bird. The bird and the leafy branch are actually two different stamps. I stamped the bird first, then masked its top beak and stamped the branch. This way it looks as though the bird is holding the branch in its beak.
The inside was very simple. I may go back and stamp the leafy branch somewhere on the inside. Do you think that would be a good idea? If so, where would be the best place to put it?
Here's another one of those bad, angled photos where I'm trying to show you the sparkle of the embossing powder.
These cards were quick and fairly easy, and I actually like the way they turned out. If I get down to the wire and need more cards, this is one I could replicate in short order.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
