Hello Stampers, 
Today it is more with the Toile Christmas. This time I will share simple tips on how to color the cardinal a easy way. The way that I color the cardinal is super simple and quick. I did 20 of these cards for a swap and it was done in little time. Trust me, the tips that I share with you in the video, you’ll be amaze on the result of the detail off the finish cards. 

Also last week or so I share tips on how to align the cardinal on the branch if you miss that post CLICK HERE or at the end of today video you will have access to the video on How to alight the cardinal on the branch.

How to color and get all fine detail 

This detail cardinal is so amazing to color. Here step by step. 

  • Using the stamparatus stamp the cardinal on watercolor paper using Cherry Cobbler Ink. *Do NOT remover the stamp on the stamparatus. 
  • Using a aqua painter blend the cherry cobbler ink. *if you desire to have darker red just add more cherry cobbler ink with the aqua painter. 
  • Let dry 
  • Clean the Cherry Cobbler of the stamp *without removing it from the stamparatus. 
  • Stamp again with memento ink. VOIAL! you have a quick and detail colored cardinal. 
  • Now stamp the branch and color 

If you are in needs of many of this design cards, I suggest stamp all in the cherry cobbler first and color. Then by the time you are done watercolor the last one, the first one will be dry and you can start stamping in the black. This is a perfect assembly line to save time.
