Little Chickadee

Happy Saturday!

I made this for a couple of challenges at Splitcoast. First, Friday’s LSC260, to use a border punch and ribbon, and for today’s IC220.  I chose this Chicken Cushion for my inspiration. I used a pretty little Chickadee  stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs, and I used similar colors.

The chickadee was stamped onto ivory c/s and I colored in the berries and added a little white to his chest w/ Prismacolor pencils. I used a loop punch across the bottom and cut the rest out using a Spellbinders rectangle Nestie. I was careful to only emboss the bottom and not cut it.  The white layer behing him was embossed using a Quickutz folder and it was lightly edged w/ a red marker. A layer of dp was added and a wide red satin ribbon and attached to a 4.25 x 5.5 (A2) ivory card. I made a couple of faux brads out of red c/s and added them in the upper left corner.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
