I guess it's that time of year to start working on Christmas cards. I have a few done, but have a long way to go. I always say every year, I'm going to start in January, and even if I can make one or two each month I wouldn't feel the crunch come Nov, but I never seem to do it - one of these years!
Today's card features one of the recent digi images from Marcella over at Power Poppy. This one is called "Chickadee in Barberry". I absolutely love this image and of course this bird. Whenever I see a chickadee, it takes me back to times in Algonquin Park, when they will each right out of your hand, it's an amazing experience!
After resizing, I printed this onto some white 100lb cougar c/s. I then cut it out using MFT stitched rectangle die and then ran it through my MINC machine to get the gold foil on the sentiment. I can see from this angle for some reason it didn't adhere to the tale on the 's'. I find that happens now and again, not sure why, because the complete sentiment was covered with foil.
I coloured the chickadee using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol. I used scraps of christmas paper from my scrap bin, but I think the papers are all from Basic Grey.
Finished off with glitter on the snow, sequins and gold twine. I also added some white dots on the berries using a white gel pen.
I really appreciate you stopping by today, have a lovely day,
