This week's challenge on Speedy TV is to use your favorite sketch. I like color blocking, and I've used this sketch with both squares and circles as a background. I'm in full Christmas card mode, so I used the challenge to make another card for my stash.
Unfortunately, this particular Mark's Finest Papers' set is retired, but I do love these cardinals. I stamped the smaller cardinal four times for the corners, and the larger cardinal I cut with a Labels Thirteen die, using my matting technique for the green layer. The cardinal images were colored with Copic markers -- R43, R29, R59, G40, G82, E33, E35, and outlined with BG10. It's hard to see, but I used some gold Smooch paint to outline the large cardinal panel.
