Cardinals


I won this adorable Cardinals image at Creative With Monika, you can purchase it at her new JCLA Etsy shop, along with many other adorable images, many with Indonesian touch.
 
I used my Copic markers to color the Cardinals, highlighted them with blue inks using my Rangers blending tool and framed them with a Tim Holtz  wood grain embossing folder with an opening  cut with an Eyelet die cut.  I can picture these making a nice Christmas card too! 
 
 
A few fun challenges:
