Hey there Chickadee!

One of the new June 8 release images from KLMDigital Designs was a chickadee. I have grown to really like bird images on cards so here is my chickadee:





This picture doesn't show the pullin pastels background paper that I used for the main card dp. I used blue green and yellow chalks on black cs to create the background paper. IRL it really pulls the navy blue highlights from the chickadee's black colors.



Here is a close up of the background:

The colors in the top photo are the true colors but I had to lighten the photo considerably to show the bg, hopefully you can imagine what it looks like :).

You could make the scalloped punch another more masculine punch and leave off the pearls as well for a masculine card very easily.

Be sure to check-out the newest images available on the KLM Digital Designs Website they are adding more daily and they are all beautiful.

Have a great day. I am in Kansas City visiting two of my kids, just wanted to show you my Chickadee card.

See you later,

Cathy

So cute. and it reminds me of a wood carving I did years ago of a chickadee. They are so sweet little birds and you did a wonderful job with him!
