This is Chickadee in Barberry, a digital stamp from Power Poppy. We have barberries and lots of chickadees, but no snow at our house. Just rain and soggy wet everything. However, when the sun comes out it sparkles so prettily on the wet foliage. I glittered the snow in the image and used a white gel pen to add a few falling flakes. Gee, if I'd cut the border a little lower I could have added some twine or gold cord, but at least it's very flat for easy mailing, and I do need as many of those as possible.
I printed on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with the following Copics:
The shading around the image is a smooshy pointillist kind of thing, fading to lighter colors and wider spaced dots at the outer edges. Just having fun. Pictured below are the markers I used in the background:
The lower edge was cut with Spellbinders Bracket Borders One, and wood grain designer paper covers a white card base.
Thanks for dropping in today. I hope to see you again soon!
