CCEE Sing For Joy

Today I got to play with the brand new ODBD sets which will be released on Feb 1st!!!  This one is called Sing For Joy.  Isn't this cardinal amazing (and it will be FAB for Christmas cards too!!!)  I used this week's sketch challenge by the CCEE girls.

I started with a base of dark green bazzill, layered with mid blue bazzill and pierced around the edge.  For the three panels required for the sketch challenge, I stamped the branch from Sing For Joy in Chocolate Chip on White and lightly coloured and then sponged all around it in Steel Blue ink.  In the spare corner I stamped part of the verse from the same set in Chocolate Chip.  The main Cardinal was stamped twice in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with markers (Artichoke, Cocoa, Real Red, Ruby Red, Basic Grey) and a blender pen.  One I cut out with Small Circle Nesties, the other I cut out the cardinal with scissors and popped up with foam tape on top of the circle panel.  This layer was matted with more dark green bazzill and I finished with a few tiny Red Kaisercraft Pearls.

Stamps - Sing For Joy (ODBD)
Paper - Dk Green Bazzill, Mid Blue Bazzill, White
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Chocolate Chip
