Christmas Cardinal for Rudolph Days

I feel a little odd posting a Christmas card just days before Easter, but I did want to get in on this month’s Rudolph Challenge, Double D’s Just Wing It Challenge, and to get another card put in the stash.

I colored my image with alcohol markers. I muddied the eye up a little bit, so I added a touch of black Nuvo drops, then when that dried, I added a dot with my white gel pen.  I think that may have saved the card.

Supplies: Elizabeth Crafts Cardinal stamp, Inkadinkado Sentiment, Memento and Versafine black inks, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Crate Paper Peppermint 6x6 paper pad, other items from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by!  I have been making a lot of cards lately, so I will be back soon to share.  

You can find me on facebook or pinterest, too.

Amazing what a little white dot can do! Your cardinal and all the rest of it looks beautiful. I really like the sentiment stamp. Any time is a good time to get a Christmas card or two done. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Double D!
