F4A392 - National Day of Oh Summer is Almost Over!!
MIX238 - Used this technique on all the leaves in the front of the cardinal.
Stamped the bg with a cardinal red leaf stamp and then embossed it with a summer flower ef.
Colored the cardinal with Copics and attached the image using foam tape.
Added the leaves using foam tape and liquid glue. The leaves were made using oxide inks with the wrinkle free distress technique. Then I added some gold gelatos to the leaves.
To give the image a fading sort of look, I sprayed the entire card with Goosebumps texture spray. It faded the distress inks in the bg and let the leaves blend together wonderfully due to using oxide inks on them! TFL!!

Ann, this card is so gorgeous and a fantastic response to Robin's challenge. The cardinal and leaves are striking! I agree with you,
Ann, as I am ready for this Florida heat to go away, not that it will!!
