Your attention to feathers is beautiful. That bird could take flight any minute. Adding the leaf stencil in those lovely colors is a perfect perch for him.

So beautiful, Christine! What a nice idea for a one layer card with the leaf providing both a frame and a background for the bird. Love those sparkly edges, too.

Sweet card. The layered stencilling likes awesome.

Whew! I’m caught up now! Not sure what’s going on, but I stopped receiving new post e-mails for your blog. Attempted to sign up again, but not sure if it worked. Hope your new year is off to a fab start.

Fabulous card Christine. Your bird is coloured to perfection. Love him sitting on the lovely stenciled leaf. Great work, my friend. xx

Happy new year, Christine! This card is fantastic! Your coloring of the bird is excellent! The gray shading is so effective in adding depth that I thought you fussy-cut the bird and attached it over to the stenciled leaf. Love the creative way of layering stencils too!

I LOVE the way you color birds, Christine! Great to see another artist enjoying pencils too! What a great card showcasing layered stenciling. I'm also impressed that you don't mind masking! Most of us try and avoid it. Wonderful card!
