Feed the birds

Our family enjoys watching the birds feeding outside our kitchen window.  In winter the seeds scatter on the snow and the cardinals, if they come, stand out: red against white.  I added a little scattering of seeds in this scene with a brown marker.

I know I owe you a sponging tutorial; you have been very patient.  I am hoping to do one over the Christmas break.  I agree that it helps to see the steps rather than have me try and describe them.  That being said, I will not go into detail about how I did this card.  Of course there were post-it notes, sponges and embossing powder involved!

I have just a few more Christmas cards to make, and then I might need to whip up a few tags.  But I had better get onto the gifts or I won’t be needing tags!

Supplies:

Stamps: Branch Out, Everyday Flexible Phrases
Inks: Bordering Blue, Basic black, Not quite Navy, Real Red, Close to Cocoa, Versamark
Cardstock: Flourishes classic white
Also: Clear e.p.

    I’ll certainly look forward to the tutorial Heather. The layers of snow look fabulous in this card look amazing.
    I loved seeing the cardinals in our yard too, when we lived in Virginia years ago!
