Happy Wednesday, peeps! I haven’t played with my friends over at Merry Monday since leaving, so I thought it was high time I did so! Deanne has a a sweet “bird” challenge, and I combined it with the sketch from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday:
I have really been reaching deep into the depths of my huge Christmas stamp stash and remembered this sweet chickadee image; I believe it is from Impression Obsession:
It’s a large image, but very easy to color; I stamped him in Stazon and used SU markers to color him in. I added a “frame” of Brushed Gold cardstock, although it’s hard to tell what color it is here, a mat of Real Red and mounted it on a cardbase of Crumb Cake, stamped with the Hardwood background. An older retired sentiment from Peaceful Wishes was stamped at the bottom.
I added a few gold speckles to break up the white space, and a diecut bow from Lil’Inkers. While I like the diecut, I am still on the fence as to whether or not it belongs here. I tried a ribbon, but I just couldn’t get it to look presentable…so for now, the diecut stays! I do love this little guy…he’s as sweet as can be! Thanks for visiting today!
Cassidy went to her first Build-a-Bear party recently! (She built a dog, though!) Gabby is a friend from pre-school and they are “best friends”, she tells me!
