SNSS Winter Chickadee - TESC91




Here is a card I made using a great sketch from Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #91. I knew as soon as I saw it what stamp set I wanted to use with it.  This is the "My Little Chickadee" stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I just love this stamp but most of the cards I've made with it have been using flowers. I wanted to change it around a bit and make a Winter Scene with it and I think it worked out quite well. Of course I think most of the credit goes to the Basic Grey Wassil Paper that I used. I've been trying to find this paper for so long now and finally found a few sheets at my local craft store. It it just so gorgeous. They are definitely my colors.
I actually seem to be using this color scheme so much lately that I'm running short of the matching green embroidery floss that I use for the hand stitching around the card and the inside.
I used a little Liquid Applique and glitter on the tree branch.
Half pearls were used in the lower corners.
The ribbon is just something I had on hand which matched it perfectly.

This is gorgeous, Nancy! The bird looks like he's about to fly right off the card, you colored him so beautifully! I love the touch of snow on his branch -- perfect for this time of year!

Gosh, Nancy, there has been so much I've missed and it's all so WONDERFUL!!! Great minds think alike... I believe I used this same image for this sketch. Or maybe it was one that was similar. Whatever, your coloring of the chickadee is the BEST!!!
