November Giveaway... Blue Bird Birthday

Altenew's winter cardinal stamp set... I have an extra for my November giveaway! See below!

Hello and welcome,

November has come and I can't believe we're so close to the holidays now! I wanted to use my new Altenew Winter Cardinal stamp/die set in the non-traditional way so I made him blue! I think he kind of looks like a bluejay/Stellar's jay, except their heads are mostly black rather than just the mask. I used some Hero Arts, Gina K Designs and Stampin' Up inks for all the blues onto Gina K Designs heavy base weight card stock.  I used my Spectrum Noir shimmer pen on the dark areas of the bird. The background is an experiment with Brushos in yellows and greens. The branch (and bird) is die cut from the same combo stamp and die set from some Gina K Designs dark brown card stock. The sentiment is a combination of Papertrey Ink and Hero Arts. I added Nuvo drops in glossy black!

You can see the shimmer of the glitter pen on this photo.

Now on to the giveaway! I have the Altenew Winter Cardinal stamp set to giveaway because I accidentally bought two of them! Lucky you! See giveaway instructions below! I'll mail this out the Monday after Thanksgiving to the winner so they can get their own cardinal cards done for Christmas!

This is my used Altenew set but winner will receive the new set when it comes in the mail!
