This card was inspired by some of Michelle Zindorf's work, but I use sponges rather than the brayer. Had 4 birch tree stamps already, but when I saw this with the birds, it was another must have stamp!
Stamp with ColorBox black ink and emboss with clear EP. Ink the trees with the Versamarker and emboss with clear EP. Color cardinals with red marker and heat set. Ink cardinals with Versamarker and emboss with clear EP. Mask with torn Post-it Notes and sponge snow with Distress Ink. Punch out circle for mask and sponge around the circle and the rest of the sky.
Don't know if Colored Embossing Markers are even available any more, but that would have been ideal for coloring the cardinals instead of the way I did it.
Stamp by Northwoods, Faded Jeans Distress Ink, Black Color Box Ink, Versamarker, Clear Embossing Powder, Red Tombow Marker, large circle punch, Post-it Notes for the masking and sponges.
