A Coloured Cardinal

Do you find colouring therapeutic? Sometimes I just like to sit and colour with no card or project in mind. I felt like that a few evenings ago and remembered I had an uninked stamp that I had bought in a sale a while ago that would be great for colouring in. I'm not an accomplished colourer who manages to do beautiful shading etc but I just enjoy the process of colouring in. The stamp is by Heartfelt Creations and is called Cardinal Posy Branch. I coloured it with Coloursoft pencils and Sansodor and cut it out. I'm not too sure about the bright red bird but I Googled the cardinal and tried to replicate the colours. I tried various coloured backgrounds but the black looked the most effective so I ran it through a lattice embossing folder for a little added texture. I'm leaving this without a sentiment for the moment but I shall probably place one on the right when required.


  1. It is lovely! Love the brightly coloured bird amongst the blossoms - so pretty. I'd love to see one of these birds but can't afford the trip to the USA just now lol.xx


I read and value all your comments.
