Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week - Chickadee at Rest

Another Monday brings another Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week!  This week's stamp is #211-P Chickadee at Rest.  You can find it on this page - just scroll down a little ways.  By visiting the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, you can find the details on how to purchase this wonderful stamp for 50% off - through Sunday, August 22 only.  Also check out the other Design Team members' blogs for inspiration.

For my card, I stamped the image on white with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I stamped it again on a scrap of white and embossed it with Detail Black embossing powder.  I colored the background (the branches and pine needles) with Stampin' Up! markers, then sponged light blue chalk over the entire image.  I cut out the embossed bird, added a little bit of tannish chalk to the bottom of the breast, and added a tiny "googly" eye.  I mounted the bird on Pop Dots.  The black corners were punched with an SU! punch.  The matting is Old Olive (by SU!) and I scored it with my Martha Stewart scoring tool.  The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions, also.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Great card, Lynette!
I love how you added the googly eye to the bird! SO cute!... Oh, and of course, I always love the scoring that you add to your cards! That's your "signature mark!" Love it! :)
