Chickadee


A Little Bird Told Me... this is the name of one of the new sets from FireCracker Designs and the birdie told me (stamped this inside) "Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul... ~ Emily Dickinson" I really liked this set when I saw it - actually the whole DT loved this set and it is truly an awesome set of drawings from Pamela with great quotes and sayings added in! You really need to check it out! I stamped the bird on Kraft paper and cut it out - coloring with some yellow and green tinged Copics. I used a scarp of previously cuttlebugged paper and then did a bit of the Heavenly Holes TJ technique on it. Matted it onto a piece of scrap paper I got in a swap extra and then adhered the bird to the edge of the Kraft Cuttlebugged paper. Added some double layered Prima flowers which were held together with fuzzy brads and then matted it all onto a piece of green cardstock then mounted it to the Kraft card base. Inside as I said I stamped the saying on a piece of Kraft cardstock which I cut into a square and mounted to the lower right corner of a matching piece of the green and layered inside to write on.
