I have been enjoying the birds in the yard again. Over the winter we had the chickadees, juncos and an occasional cardinal or two. Recently, there have been blue jays, a family of cardinals and today I saw the house finches. So when I was deciding what card to make, I thought a bird card would be perfect. I colored the image from the Moon Lake stamp set (Occasions Mini) with my colored pencils. I lightly went over the coloring using Gamsol. The Hardwood background stamp was inked using Elegant Eggplant and then stamped off before stamping for this card. I wanted the wood background, but by stamping off, I kept the bird image as the center of attention. A little Regals DSP and the card is what I was aiming for. I did leave off the sentiment until I decide for what I will use it. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
