Winter bird card

  Hello crafter's, Any of you sick of cold weather yet? I can't stand being cold. I think they are calling for snow for Sunday. Hopefully we won't get much. They are also saying it will be really cold for the rest of the month. That it won't be getting above the 20s.

I do have an extra little heater that I keep in my craftroom. So I keep toasty warm in there. 

I was needing a card and decided that I would use a bird stamp from Polkadoodles.

I had bought this stamp a couple of years ago and had never used it. So I knew that it was time to give it a try.

I had been a little nervous to try and color it because I really have no idea how to color feathers on a bird. But it turned out ok I guess.

Used alcohol markers to color it and used a sponge to color in a little blue sky using Bashful Blue from S.U. Also sponged a little bit of Summer Sun in the corner for a little sunshine.  Used a white gel pen to color the snow on the trees.

The sentiment is from a stamp from Stampabilities. 

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great day!  Stay safe and stay crafty my friends.

  1. Oh my gosh! My favorite bird, your coloring is fantastic!
    We are so cold here in Maryland. We got clobbered by a snow storm last week, it damaged my sweet red bud tree! I am hoping it will survive.
    Hope we don't get too much snow!

  2. Oh my I am so with you not liking the cold, in our part of the UK it's not risen above 6deg for weeks, no snow but a good few minus days and so much rain.

    I love your Robin in the CAS setting and the hint of colour coming in from the corner. Thanks so much for sharing with us at We Love Stamping January challenge.
