My Little Chickadees...


I'm still working on using some of my favorite (and neglected) Christmas stamps! This one is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps and it's called Chickadee Holiday .

I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. I colored with Tombow Markers blending with a damp paintbrush.

To give some sparkle and dimension to the snow I topped with White Opal Liquid Pearls then sprinkled on Crystal Ultrafine Glitter .

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Holiday Messages Sparkle Clear Set . It was still on my desk from the card I posted yesterday! I stamped the sentiment on Blush Red Prismatics dark, then cut it with my Spellbinders Labels One Nestabilities .

The green cardstock is Herbal Garden Prismatics dark. The designer paper is from my stash, and the punch used for the side border is from Martha Stewart.

I hope you're all having a great week. The weather here has been just beautiful after the tornado we had last Thursday. We are all soaking up some sunshine and enjoying the days without rain.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog today. I appreciate your kindness and encouraging comments.
