Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a fun Christmas and are now relaxing playing with all your crafting toys.
For my card this week I decided to take my inspiration from a fellow team member Miranda Degenaars. Miranda is an amazing artist and recently has done a number of videos on using pencils on kraft card you can find them under Miracle Art Inspirations on YouTube.
I stamped the bird in Ranger Archival Potting soil, then masked the bird and stamped the flowers around. I started colouring the light areas in white pencil and used browns and black for the shading.  When I finished the shading I added a hint of colour to the leaves with green and pink on the flowers, it's very subtle. I distressed the edge of the card and attached it to a white card base.

Sometime, simple tools yield outstanding results. This is a beautiful case in point.

What a wonderful chickadee so beautifully colored! Love the white flowers and stamping around the edges.
