Yesterday evening my family and I went to visit a friend of ours who is recovering from having surgery, removing many cancerous masses all through his body. He and his wife have been through quite a lot lately, and we just wanted to call on them and let them know that we are here if they need anything. Since we were visiting, I thought I would make a quick card. I was watching my kids play across the street today w/ the neighbor kids, and was just messing around w/ Kitchen Sink Stamps' Winter Cardinals. Maria, from KSS, had made a card on her blog using blues to make a bluejay! I LOVED it and the image stuck w/ me, and so I attempted to make my own!
Here is the full card.
And here's a closeup of the bird.
Here's my recipe:
Bluejay: 3. Onyx Black, 2. Paris Dusk, 1. Paris Dusk s.o. and wipe the beak and talons clean and ink the beak w/ the tip of Dandelion, and the talons w/ Onyx Black, 4. Onyx Black
Branch: 1. Cottage Ivy, 2. Olympia Green, 3. Rich Cocoa
