Cardinals in Winter

This is another card I got to create over the weekend when I spent it all weekend at the store in my craft studio. (it has a patio door so I will be lofty and call it a studio) ha
I am usually at the store everyday anyway but the guys were youth hunting so I could be here 'guilt free'. It makes the time all that much more fun. I think the creative juices flow better too =)
This card was made with Copics in mind. And I was rigth to assume they'd be great on this image. I was able to blend the female cardinal perfectly and Copics make any brown blend seamlessly. With other markers you see the lines with each stroke. The background paper has glitter in it so then I was compelled to use the new Flower Soft Polar White that also has shimmer in it. It all worked together for a very elegant card.
This will be one offered in my "Winter Wishes" card class Nov. 9th but I also think it can be used for several other types as well. Unfortunely we all need sympathy cards and this would be a beuatiful one for that. Call the store to sign up for this class as I predict this one will fill up fast...it has 3 cards and they all turned out nice. (all from my weekend of fun!) 830-9555

Supplies: Northwoods stamp, Cornder punch, Copics, Flower Soft, Nestibilites,
