Chickadee Holiday


Sorry I'm so late posting tonight. It's been a bit crazy, but I was determined to post before I call it a night.

This gorgeous stamp is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps. In fact, I just received a shipment from them tonight. It's called Chickadee Holiday . Isn't it a beautiful stamp? I absolutely LOVE it, and it was sooooo much fun to color!

I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Clear Detail embossing powder.

The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers and blended with a damp paint brush.

The sentiment is Merry Christmas from Impression Obsession. It is the perfect size for my Spellbinders Double Ended Tags die cut. I adhered Pearls from Kaiser Craft to each end of the tag.

The red cardstock is Blush Red Dark Prismatics, and that rich green is Sage Prismatics Dark .

I know this is short, sweet, and to the point. But hey...it's late and time for my evening nap! LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I will be back soon.
