Have you every been outside at dusk, when it's recently snowed? It's soooooo quiet. And the landscape looks so very different with all that snow. Then, you hear a rustle coming from somewhere. And you see a bright splotch of red against a white and black backdrop. It's a lone cardinal in a birch tree. Not too creepy right? Except for that instant when you didn't know what made the rustling sound.......
I made this card for a friend of mine. She posted a photo very similar to this one on my Facebook wall. She knows how special cardinals are to me, so I decided to replicate the image for her as a little thank you.
Now it's time for my second project. I made an ATC for the Wicked Wednesday Challenge as well as the latest A Day For Daises challenge. The Wicked Wednesday challenge is "Things with Wings," and the A Day For Daisies challenge is "Shades of Blue."
I used the Free Hand Bird with Music Notes, which is of course from A Day For Daisies. . I watercolored the image, and added some beautiful Ice Stickles around the edge. The little heart shaped button is a soft blue, but I'm not sure how easy it is to see in the photo.
Is't this a lovely image? I love the style of all the images from this company. It's never creepy or scary, but something about them really draws me in. They are for sure one of my favorite digi companies.
My simple sentiment was created using an alphabet stamp from Just Rite Stampers. My blue paper has a pretty, pale spotted pattern on it, but again, it's a little tough to see in the photos.
I hope you have enjoyed my offerings for today. Please be sure to stop by the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, they are all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!
