Card Sketch #34 - Cardinal

Here is sketch #34, nice and easy with lots of possibilities!

The main image is colored with prismacolor pencils and blended with baby oil. I tried this technique while I was on the road and couldn't bring my OMS with me. I was actually very pleased with the results. I took some creative license with the image, and made it into a Cardinal. Hopefully it looks like one!

My white card base is covered with paper that is from Paper Pizazz (Christmas 8X8 papers). The main image is matted with red bling and green that matches the plaid. Twine is added in the back ground to match the nature theme of this card. Instead of using black brads in the corner, I added black dots using my gel glaze pen. Basically this was an after thought, since I already had the image popped up and on the card. Thanks for looking and have a great week.
