I have always wanted to try the one one layered cards. There are some in the gallery on SCS that simply put, are stunning. I will work on this technique because there is something to be said for an elegant card without all the frills.
I fell in love with this set after Carol RAK’d me and sent me the image of a bird on a basket of apples. I cut an oval with my Coluzzle and sponged the background in Night of Navy. These three birds are so adorable and I just couldn’t resist stamping them over the pine branch. I watercolored the birds and branch, then used my white gel pen on the pines and pine cones to look like snow. I also added Fruit Punch Stickles to the berries for a little sparkle. I had some ribbon that I bought last summer but have never used that I tied on top. I know the card looks white in the picture, but I used Very Vanilla for the card base which I felt gave it a softer look.
