Nuthatch by Fred She Said for the Winter Wonderland Challenge on the 3rd of June, 2022


At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Christine!

Welcome to our fifth challenge for 2022.

Our theme is:

Flying High at Christmas

So here is my project:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme of Flying High at Christmas.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Fred She Said:

Fred She Said Designs offers a wide variety of digital products with a floral flair and cute characters too - digis, pre-coloured images, papers, sets, Fred's Flower Kits and even digital cutting files.
Have some fun with Fred!

We had a choice of two images and I chose the image Nuthatch Digi, which I have digitally printed on to X-Press It blending card and then coloured it with the following Copics markers:
  • bird brown - E40, E41, E43, E44, E47, E49
  • bird red - R24, R27, R39, R59
  • bird beak - C5, C7, C9
  • bird eye - white gel pen
  • pine needles - YG03, YG09, YG67, Twinkle Stickles
  • pine cone - E43, E44, E47, E49, Twinkle Stickles and Frosted Lace Stickles
  • outline - YG09
I cut the image with my paper cutter and adhered it on to a white square card from Envelope Solutions.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here is a close-up of the colouring with the Frosted Lace Stickles before it has dried properly:
