The theme this week over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges is "NATURE"- an easy one for you. This can include any animal, bird, fish, flower, tree - the list really is endless!!
As I have not quite finished my Christmas cards, I chose this Cardinal for my DT creation this week. The image does have some flowers on the end of the branch but I decided to cover them with the poinsettia, which was originally white but I coloured it with a Promarker.
A close-up of the image - I searched the internet for pictures of Red Cardinals, so I hope I have done this beautiful bird justice with my colouring - lol. I have added some glitter to the branch for a snow effect but its not showing up that well in the pictures.
For the inside, I added a tag to write a message on.
Medium - Promarkers, Derwent Pencils and Old Paper Distress Ink
Papers - some freebies I got last year from a magazine
Poinsettia and Sentiment - Craftwork Cards (again from last year)
Holly - cut on the Cricut
Red sparkly leaves - cut from a Christmas decoration
Pearls - stash (also coloured with Promarkers)
Tag - cut on the Cricut
