Christmas birds


     Today I'm sharing my last card make from the new Christmas clear stamp sets from Art Impressions.  I still have plenty of other new sets to showcase, but they aren't Christmas stamps.
     I think this is my favorite of all the holiday cards I've shared.  I really had fun making this one.  I've used the Snow Friend Set.

     I inked the tag in different places to create the sky background.  I die cut the branch from white cards stock and used a grey Copic to color the bottom part leaving the top white for snow.  There's also some Stickles on there.
     Then I went to work with the stamp set.  All the images are in the set.  I did a lot of fussy cutting.  The birds and the bow on the birdhouse are popped up on foam.  The holly berried were covered in Glossy Accents.  Before I added the birds I did some splattering with some watered down white acrylic paint.


Copics Used:
birds R27, R46, R37, C2, C4, Y21, E97
holly R27, R37, YG25, YG17, YG67
tree branches W3
bird house E31, E35, E23, E57, W1, W3,W5
bow and pole R27, R46, R37, C2

     Have a blessed day!
