Bluejay

Taking a break from the foiling for a bit and worked up a CAS masculine design which also features masculine colors. I am entering this in the Stamplortions June CAS Card Challenge in which the theme is Anything CAS Goes with the twist being masculine colors.


I used the cardinal stamp from The Birds and The Blooms stamp set from Stamplorations but colored him so that he looked like a bluejay instead. I colored the image with Zig Clean Color Markers and added some of them to a clear plastic lid and watered them out to fill in the lighter areas. Afterwards I added some white using a white paint pen.  My final step was to take some of the same Zig colors I had used and diluted them with water and then added some splats with a paintbrush to the background,. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

This took longer to photograph I think then it actually did to make the card design. And, I like it. This can be a very versatile card which will work for many occasions.

Thanks for stopping in and for your sweet comments. Have a wonderful weekend!

God bless,
Verna
