Chickadees


My sweet friend Judy Jung sent me this unmounted chicadee stamp last spring, and I thought it would be fun to try and cut it out and use it instead of my usual flowers for the CASE study challenge, based on a card by Maki Jones.  I colored them with watercolor pencils, blending with a Dove Blender, then cut it out and added some red metallic gems.  The sentiment is from a clear Hero Arts Thanksgiving set, and the papers used for the background and label are from K&Company fall mat pads.

Such a sweet card - I always wondered what a chickadee was! They look very like our coal tits or maybe a willow tit. That colouring is perfect and such warm autumn colours - love it.

I hope you don't mind Lin but I've been lucky enough to receive a blog award this week and would love to pass it on to you. Please don't feel obliged to accept! I know some bloggers don't like them.

Oh what a sweet card! Your colouring is gorgeous on those birds - I didn't even realise a chicadee was a type of bird! LOL!
Thanks so much for taking part in this week's CASE study!
Hugs,

This card is so pretty for Fall! I usually color birds in blues and bright colors - but I LOVE how you did them in the warm colors. Great blog! Have a nice day.
