This pheasant's so pleasant

Here’s that handsome pheasant I was telling you about. He comes with the Autumn Days stamp set, which will be available from 1st October.

I inked him up with markers so that I could get a multi-coloured image - Handsome Hunter on his head, with a Ruby Red beak, Close to Cocoa body with flecks of Creamy Caramel and a matching tail. I drew the grass freehand with the fine end of a Handsome Hunter marker.

It was my first time stamping the pheasant so I kept the card quite simple. Maybe when I’m feeling braver I’ll add some foliage around him!

Stamps: Autumn Days
Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Handsome Hunter, Whisper White, Ruby Red
Paper: Spiced Cider
