DZ Doodles New Release Day

Today is New Release Day at DZ Doodles! Diane has so many images she wants to share with all of us! Take a moment to visit the site, look at the cute images and browse the are sure to be inspired. For this release, I have created three cards.

It was such fun coloring the cardinal. I used 4 or 5 different Copic reds on him. I cut him out with paper snips and mounted him on foam tape. I used my square Nesties for his resting spot. While the card stock was still in the Nestie, I sponged it with Heavenly Blue ink. I think he looks quite at home on the holly berry background paper.

He was so much fun to color, I made two! I liked the idea of putting the cardinal in the 'snow'. I used snow background paper and put some Dazzling Diamonds on it, for a bit of sparkle. Although, I don't think my camera picked that up so nicely for you. You can always click on the image for a closer look.

My last card features this little cutie. She reminded me of my girls when they used to play dress up. They would take my shoes, hats and purses and just have a great time...pretending to be mommies, or having a tea party. I used a sketch from the Victoria Case challenge for this one.

Thanks for the visit! Have a wonderful weekend. Until we meet again...

All three of your cards are beautiful, Barb! You've done a great job with your coloring, your background papers for the cardinal cards are gorgeous and work perfectly with that image, and the touch of glitter on the second one makes it look soooo wintery, and your dress-up girl is darling!

Hope all is well. ;)
