Warm Thoughts

I really wanted to use the darling Impression Obsession Spring Chickadee stamp given to me by my sweet friend, Maria.  
With the current IO challenge to use summer/warm colors, I decided to stamp the bird on kraft with brown ink.  I fussy cut the bird & another wing for some dimension.  I used my neglected gel pens to add a bit of color & mounted the bird to a panel blended with Distress Inks & sprayed with gold Perfect Pearls.  The shimmer is really stunning in person.  The sentiment from IO Anytime Sentiments was stamped in brown under the panel & I added gold splatters.  The little wooden embellishment from Freckled Fawn seemed perfect to finish it off.  I'm also entering CCCB & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
