Today we are highlighting this beautiful set from 
Theresa Momber called Peace and Joy!   Below is a short tutorial how I colored my cardinal.  




To select the colors for my cardinal, I picked all of the colors from the Spectrum Noir Reds pack & scribbled the colors on a small piece of cardstock so could select which ones to use.    I started on the belly with a CR10 marker. 



Next I used a CR8 marker and overlapped slightly.


Next I added CR11 and finished coloring the bird.


Then I added some TN3 all over to add just a bit of tan.


To try and add just a bit more shading, I added Spectrum Noir pencil 033.


After coloring the holly leaves with DG2 and DG4, I added Spectrum Noir Blendable colored pencils 057 & 106 for a bit more color.  For the berries, I used DR1 & DR5 and then added some white gel pen & Glossy accents.



Now it's time to hop along and see what other wonderful inspiration the designers have to share today.
