Winter Snow Bird

I don’t know what happened but we have little to no snow here in Ontario. The temperatures are so warm the lake is open and no ice formations anywhere. It is too warm for January. I can’t believe I just said that, but we had to cancel our winter photography shot in Michigan because of the warm weather. That being said, I decided to make a cooler card (getting 2015 Christmas cards started). Using Catch the Bug’s Photo Inspiration (shown below), this is what I made.



Products used:

Bugaboo Stamps – Crow (note: I flipped the digi stamp, blocked out the flower in his mouth, coloured him similar to the photo inspiration bird, and added a Santa hat)
China Glass Distress Ink – Tim Holtz
Copic markers to colour the bird
Memory Box Dies – Hayden Twigs
Snowflakes Dies – Paper Smooches
Red stickles – Ranger
Snow Writer – DecoArt
Sentiment – Papertrey Ink

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
