Day Two of the Mark’s Finest Papers Blog Hop features the new set Ferns and Chickadee. I sometimes have a problem doing masculine-type cards, but this set lends itself well to such a card. By using non-floral DP and subtle colors, this would be quite appropriate for a guy.
I stamped the Chickadee with Palette Charcoal onto Pensacola Sand, which is part of the Naturals line of Mark’s Finest Papers. Before removing the paper from the square diecut, I sponged some Landscape ink around the edges. The chickadee is colored with Copic and Prismacolor markers. I stamped the smaller ferns and the sentiment in the center of the flourished box and then cut it out using a long rectangle Nestabilities die, sponging around the edges to correspond with the sponging on the bird panel. All the DP is from Basic Grey’s Sugared paper pad. I added some gingham ribbon and the small scalloped photo corners.
