Chickadee in Muted Colors

Hi there,
I've been so preoccupied with "stuff" these days that I haven't had much time to play or post.  Being behind is becoming a "norm" for me lately....I'm out to fix that.

Over at StampTV this week, Janice Whiting challenge us to create with muted colors.  Why did I struggle so much with that????  I think my brain was in overload and I couldn't make my color pallets work no matter what I pulled together.  Finally, at the eleventh hour (literally) I created this card.  I just love, love, love this stamp set by Asela Hopkins called Winter Wings.

 I loved the results of this combination.  The photo really doesn't show it well, but it's a gorgeous combination.  BTW...see that little tiny bit of ribbon that didn't get tucked at the top of the card?  I took care of that.  *wink*

I colored the image with Copics by just lightly touching the Chickadee with W-3.  I softly sponged Distress Inks, Victorian Velvet, Pumic Stone and Bundled Sage around the bird and those colors really blended so well with that Cappella DP by Basic Grey.  I colored the lacy ribbon with Copics too, in order to get the right blend.

Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to log on to Stamp TV on Thursday night for the new release.  By the looks of the snippets, it's going to be a fantastic party.

Thanks for stopping by.
