St. Louis is the home of the Cardinals, both the baseball team and the birds. We have a pair that visit our yard -- the birds, not the players -- and they are gorgeous. This one I made male and kept the rest of the card super simple to keep the focus on him. I think he likes it that way. ;-) I inked the stamp with Marvy markers, then colored Mr. Cardinal with several layers of pencil.
Thanks for looking!
Today I'm grateful for: my daughter's Half Birthday, chocolate cake, big bulletin boards, family reading time, candle light
