Female Cardinal Toile Christmas Bundle Card

Hello and Happy Sunday Funday!  I've had a nice quiet and peaceful morning but thought I'd try antoher Christmas Card with the Toile Cardinal Bundle.  I had to google female cardinals  and I think I did a decent job for my first one  but I definitely will need to work a little on this.  Maybe for the next one I will attempt to watercolor it.  For this time I used my Stampin' Blends.

I stamped the cardinal in Soft Suede onto Very Vanilla Cardstock.  For the red, I used the dark Poppy Parade Stampin' Blend along with a little of the Light Crumb Cake and the Color Lifter.  For the limb I used the darked Crumb Cake, Light Mossy Meadow and the dark Poppy Parade and again used the Color Lifter to move some of the color around a bit.  After die-cutting them I decided to do a little extra fussy cutting around the feet of my bird so that he would look like he was actually sitting on the branch.  I think that little bit of extra fussy cutting really made such a difference.  

Have a blessed Sunday!  Tina

  2. thank you for the female cardinal. this is the best I have found. Thank you for sharing.,

  3. Did you ever try the female with water coloring? You did a fabulous job using blends (I read about trying the tip to tip technique with blends — maybe i will try using the color lifter, though)
