Yvonne provided our sketch for January using a winter theme. Here is my take using the Susan Louise cardinal image.
Using Distress Ink, I sponged the background of the cardinal and then spritzed with water so it gives the appearance of snow. Very hard to see this in the photo. The sentiment is a new die from Tim Holtz/Sizzix. Used these new dies quite a bit for the holidays. Today, he posted on his blog new word dies he designed with Sizzix and they are a must-have for me! Happy, happy!
