World Card Making Day Bloghop with OWH


You can hop all day long for some great eye candy! 
When leave here you can click HERE to go right to the beginning of the HOP!
The blog hop theme was to make wintry cards (holiday themed secular/religious, or other OWH-themes with a winter feel) based on a sketch. I used an older sketch from Mojo Monday. 
If you are not familiar with Operation Write Home, you can go to their main page and read all about what a fantastic organization it is to make cards for.


I used an old favorite image, Holly Chickadee, from Impression Obsession. This little chickadee is a quick color if you are doing multiple cards for the holidays. 
Here are the Copics I used to color the image. I stamped on Curious Cryogen Paper, so it has a little shimmer in person. 
Here's an up close view. I gently curved the sentiment with my fingers and then used Dimensional Silicone to pop it up. When the silicone dries, it will keep the bend in place. I used Perfect Layer Rulers for all the straight line layers.
