Chickadee

It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week it's an Anything Goes theme. I chose to showcase the beautiful chickadee stamp (211-P, Chickadee at Rest) by stamping it on an old dictionary page in versamark watermark ink and embossing it with midnight black embossing powder. I added some color by using sponge daubers and distress inks. Inside I stamped the branches in two corners and added the 9717-C, Happy Hello sentiment.

Remember to stop by the Repeat Impressions Store and check out all the beautiful stamps -- there's a 10% discount code for my blog readers posted on the sidebar.  Also, come by the The House That Stamps Built and join in the fun of each new weeks challenge! The first Wednesday of every month One lucky person will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate! You don't have to use RI stamps to play along, but if you do you'll get an extra entry in the random draw! The more you link up, the greater your chances of winning! So what are you waiting for.....come on over and showoff your creativity!

What a fantastic uplifting card, like the distressing, bakers twine and sequins for embellishing and how you carried the design to the inside!

I used this stamp too but entirely different. Love how versatile RI stamps can be.used. Love the distressing as well as the bling of the sequins.
