Little Chickadee {WPlus9}

Good Morning!  TGIF!  So a few days ago, I got my WPlus9 new release order and I had to dig right in!  When I saw the first peeks of this adorable chickadee from the A New Day stamp set, I knew I had to have him.  About 6 months ago, I put a bird feeder outside my kitchen window, and I have really been enjoying all of the different birds that come to visit.  I have not seen a chickadee yet, but I've been on the lookout!

This image is a little different than I am used to coloring,  but I have to say that I really loved coloring more life-life images!  I think I will be picking up a few others that I have been eyeing...

To create the background, I masked off the bird and branch and then used an ink blending tool with WPlus9 Bo Peep and Falling Star inks to create this soft almost watercolor looking effect.  I am SO impressed with these inks.  They blend like a dream!  The sentiment is from another new set, Love Mom.

I used the scallop frame from the Sunshine Layers die set along with the stitched frame from the Mama Elephant Femme Frames set for the main panel and that is popped up on a patterned paper covered card base.

Audrey, you got my attention with the chickadee. They are such busy chirping sweet little birds. Your coloring is superior, but I think the background is my favorite. The inks you used made such a subtle perfect look. Can you give me your opinion on the stamping ability of the Wplus9 inks? Your mother will love the card.
