Hey Little Chickadee!

Happy Friday to you! Here is my take on the SCS limited supplies challenge. Today the challenge was to incorporate a rectangle and a circle, only using ribbon as an embellishment. I punched circles in the corners of my light blue layer to meet the circle requirement.

The bird is from Hey Chick, by Unity, and the tree is by Odd Bird Planet from Limelight Papercrafts. Both images are colored with Koh-i-noor pencils. I used mineral spirits to blend the colors.

After stamping the tree, I used Versa Mark ink to heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged the background with Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue inks.

Thank you for visiting. I hope your day is wonderful!
