Addicted to Stamps and More #146


Hi Everyone,
this is my second blog post today - if you are looking for the STAMPlorations blog hop, click HERE

Its challenge time at ATSM! For the next two weeks our theme is Anything Goes - don't you just love this?




I used that wonderful Cardinal from the brand new STAMPlorations set The Birds and The Blooms and colored him with water colors. Added the branch  - by Memory Box and stamped the leaves, which are form the set Rosebuds and colored them in, too. Added splatters, what else...?

And then I added Stickles to the beak - it has to glitter somewhere...

Okay so I am on the Addicted to Stamps blog and admiring the DT work when I cam upon your cardinal card. It was so beautiful and well balanced that it took my breath away. Not kidding... Your coloring is AMAZING and the sentiment choice is perfect!! I guess what I am trying to say is this is one FANTASTIC card.

I'm a bird junkie so I've been fascinated by your bird cards...just gorgeous. Cardinals are one of my favorite birds. Sadly, in our area they're not indigenous but I sure love how you color them.

cm said...

Your bright red bird, with his sparkly beak, is marvelous! He's pretty and, I imagine, rather friendly...unlike the hippo-sized scary black ones we have *grin*!
