Today I'd like to show you my first make and take that I had at my open house last week. Since I did the diamond dust technique previously on a Friday Mashup challenge I decided I wanted to do it with the cardinal stamp Beauty of the Season from the Holiday catalog. I definitely think this was the ladies' favorite!
This pic doesn't look too bad, but seeing the diamond dust technique in person is SO much better! I stamped it with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and colored the cardinal in with Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities. I also used the Stampin' Write Basic Black for the branches and on the bird, plus Basic Gray for his legs. I didn't have enough candy dots for everyone coming and didn't feel like making my own, so I used the cupcake punch to punch out three circles.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
