RI SOTW - Chickadee at Rest

It's time for another SOTW (Stamp of the Week) from Repeat Impressions and this time we have a beautiful chickadee for you! Be sure to visit The House That Stamps Built to see how YOU can purchase this exact stamp for 50% off.

For at least 24 hours I had been thinking about the card I was going to create, I was going to make a little note set and I had rolled some ideas over and over in my head. When I finally got some time to stamp, I found this stamp MUCH larger than my mind had imagined. HA! Therefore, nothing that I had rolled around in my head worked - HA HA!

But alas, I still love my little chickadee; I went for another CAS card using PTI Kraft & Dark Chocolate. I stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored it with Watercolor Pencils & OMS. Added some snow and some sand sparkle to my little birdy (can't see the sparkle in these pictures - bummer) and adhered it all to a base of Kraft.

Check out the additional eye candy created by the other Rock Stars:

Thanks for stopping by; I {heart} when you visit! Hugs, ~M.

Michele, my favorite part about your card is the way you added the white "snow" detail to your leaves. That is such a pretty effect and I will definitely be trying that out in the future! :)
Love your card. The bakers twine looks great too!
Thanks for the fabulous inspiration today!

Great card, Michele! Funny, I made a very similar card with this stamp a while back - great minds think alike! It really lends itself to kraft paper.
