Heartfelt Creations - Scrapbooking Made Simple

Heartfelt Creations - Spring Cardinal card.

I received this wonderful stamp as a gift from Scrapbooking Made Simple in Santa Clarita. It is an amazing store, and if you can't make it to their store in person, be sure to go to their website and order from there! How simple is that! Not only can you order this stamp but also the coordinating Spellbinders dies... they are to dye die for... LOL.. sorry. Order Here!

Here I colored the image then mounted onto a simple 6 x 6 card.

As always, start with your lightest color first, then add your next lightest color and so on.
When blending two colors
together, use the lighter of the two colors touching each other to blend them together. IE: R22, R24, R2
7 use the R22 to blend where the R22 & R24 join together, and use the R24 to blend where the R24 and R27 join together
The image was colored with the following colors.
Bird: R22, R24, R27, R59 (less of each color as you get darker focusing on the areas with more hash marks or areas behind other areas IE: below the wing is darker to make the wing look popped up closer to the eye).
Cherries: Base is Y32, Y35 then I added R22, R24, R27, and a Bit of R59. Again using less of each color as you go darker. (I showed a photo of cherries prior to adding a final layer of R22. The yellow was too bright for my liking so I just added a layer of R22 to redden it up a bit).
Leaves: YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67 again using less of each color as you go darker.
