Cuddling Cardinals Sneak Peek and a Blog Candy Alert

No, I don't have it ready yet....but be watching! I'll have some blog candy up soon!!

I wanted to share this new Tom Allen Friendly Kritters, Cuddling Cardinals, with you! Isn't it just adorable!!

It will be available next Tuesday the 23rd!

I colored them with Prismacolor pencils blended with baby oil. Clouds were done using my homemade template and sponging off the edge with ink. And I just love my new Branch Punch by EK Success!! The snow is Puffy Paint heated with my heat gun.

span style="color:#003300;"> I've been wanting to try coloring on dark cardstock with my Prismas for a while and this was the perfect opportunity! The Pine Needles & Cones Backgrounder was stamped on the Sage dark, then I just took a light green pencil to the needles, light brown and a light gray to the cones....blended it a bit with my blending pencil. I really like how it turned out, although I'm not sure how well you can see it in the photo. But I can assure you, it won't be the last time I do it so you'll have more occasions to see it *wink*

Oh, and the sketch is from Cardmaker's newsletter.

Thanks for stopping!
