Welcome to Designed 2 Delight’s August Blog Hop. This month we are presenting a few new images along with highlighting some of our favorite fall and winter images.
I’ve always loved this Cardinal with Winterberries image but I’ve never gotten around to coloring it – I was amazed at how easy it was to color. For me red copics can be a bit tricky but I mixed the red with a bit of the cool grays and that helped with the red intensity.

My third card I’m using an image from one of my favorite fall collections. -Scarecrow Teddy Set.
I couldn’t find any papers I wanted to use so I made my own background paper. I took 5 different ink pad from PaperTrey Ink and randomly rubbed them over a piece of white cardstock. I then used various scraps of cardstock, embossed them and lightly ran the ink pads over the raised area for a bit of interest – really brings out the embossing detail.
