My project for the challenge is inspired by the amazing photos of the American red Cardinal that you often see photographed in the wintertime, it's amazing red feathers contrasting with the snow.  Well red wasn't one of the colours in the challenge so I've substituted a brilliant pink-purple cherry glitter instead and used white glitter to mimic the snow on the branch.  This has turned out to be a very non-traditional Christmas card.

The background is a resist card sprayed with Tweedle Dee Denim and Cheshire Cat Cherry which in some areas have blended while wet to create a beautiful violet colour.

What I used:

Lindy's Stamp Gang Products:

I have also used:

  • Prima: Vintage Trinkets - Bird on branch, Rock Candy Frost - branch and Cradle Sparrow - Bird nest
  • I Am Roses flowers
  • Stickles: Frosted Lace and Stardust
  • WOW: Square Frame
  • Art Glitter - Gala Glitz white
  • Pink Paislee Mistable cardstock


I really like how the stickles/Gala Glitz combination looks like snow on the branches.  I felt the Brocade glitter on the bird needed something glittery to compliment it.

The flower was initially sprayed in Cheshire Cat Cherry and then was over-sprayed in Tweedle Dee Denim - more heavily sprayed on the outer petals to give a darker look.  The accompanying flowers were coloured with the same combination.
