Special Guest - Terri Burson

Hello friends. I'm back with another guest design project for Whimsy Stamps, sharing this Wintry Valentine that features the Tweetie Pie stamp set and Cozy Winter paper pack.  I am so smitten with these sweet birdies and couldn't wait to create with them.  Scroll down for a few creative details!

I love the size of my centerpiece stamp.  Because of this, I chose to make a simple square card with minimal ink blending, and focus on making these tweetie birds shine!

Let me tell you, I do not consider myself an expert on coloring with Copic markers.  In fact, I am a bit of a rebel in that I like to do my own thing.  I often swipe colors to test and see what may or may not work rather than following the standard recommended rule of choosing 3 colors in the same family with a 2 or 3 number variance between colors.

In the photo above, I cut a square piece of Neenah 110 lb solar white cardstock and did some minimal ink blending with a hybrid light pink ink.  I left the center white, for placement of my birds heads to begin coloring.

It's most likely cold in much of the USA during February, so I thought it would be fun to once again stretch those holiday stamps into the great beyond for Valentine's Day.  As I did for my last project, I'm once again accenting a snowy scene with a white gel pen.  It adds a fun flair and that added bit of interest, I think. If you'll look closely, you can see that I also accented the musical notes and drew in tiny white hearts around my bird stamp.

My card is layered with the pink snowflake sheet from the Cozy Winter paper pack and adhered to my square, scored card.  I'm also a matchy-matchy kind of girl, so I initially chose my paper and then decided what coloring implements I would use to coordinate.

If you'd like to know which Copics I've used, here's the run down:

Birds: E33, YR21, Y21, Y11, 0 
Bird Hat: R32, R20, RV10
Bird Scarf: B97, B93, B000
Branch: E33, E31, E00
