This may be the last Christmas card I make this season..or maybe not as I love making them so much. I am using a stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs. I love birds and thought this was a beauty.
I will be sending this to my choir director that leads our community praise and worship choir. It consists of appx. 150-200 voices and sings heavenly music. I don't think he will even mind having the pretty, more feminine bow and brad as he knows what the card signifies.
I decided to do an 'out of the box' technique with this pretty bird as his tail feathers and the branch are so perfect for it. I did the watercoloring of my image with Tombow markers and a watercolor brush, added some glitter to the berries and a pretty ribbon and brad. The die cuts are Shapeabilities listed below in the recipe and I used a Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder.
