a winter bird

I carved this little bird out the other night during the snow storm.

I drew the outline freehand and then set to carving. I bought a few rubber blocks from Pearl Paint on Canal Street and practice my carving skills whenever I have a moment.

Winter Bird

To make this I used: Speedball carving tools and Speedball Blockprinting Ink in Black + Speedball Rubber Block.

All products were bought at Pearl Paint, but you can also get them at your local Michaels Arts and Crafts or AC Moore.

Lily loved watching me carve this and thought it was such fun that in the end there was a little bird on paper. Ah the joy of creating!!!

I can’t wait to put a stack of cards with this little guy in someone’s gift bag this season.
