Robin Redbreast Easel Card

It's been intro week over at Delicious Doodles Blog and now it's my turn! To pad out my spiel I decided to chuck in a few creations! This card is one of them :) Please do stop by and check out the other girls creations and blogs as there is some stunning work on show.

I'd spotted this image in the Delicious Doodles store and decided that I'd really like to have a play with it! I've not coloured an image like this before and will admit that I was a little intimated by it. However, I have to say that for a first attempt using Promarkers I'm not unhappy with it, but more practice is definitely needed! I will be using it again as I really enjoyed colouring it.



I created the cardbase using nesties. The image has been coloured with Promarkers. I've glossy accented the berries and added stickles to the background. Snowtex has been applied to the branches and then stickled. The holly leaves have been die cut, coloured with Promarkers and an embossing tool has been run round to add dimension, they've then been Glossy Accented. The Christmas Rose has been made using my Sizzix die. I've used Magic Soft to create the centre and then stickled the edges to give some sparkle.

Tools
Sizzix Big Shot
Nestabilities - Large Circles
Sizzix Holly Leaf Die
Sizzix Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die
Tim Holtz Blender

  19. Wow - that card is simply stunning!

    Can I ask a silly question? When you make it using two circles, What do you do to make the 'easel' part?

    Told you it was silly! LOL
