Jingle Bells Chickadee - Saturday Sketch Challenge Stamping 411 #222

I love the Beautiful Seasons stamp set, and the image was perfect for the Saturday Sketch Challenge with Stamping 411 here





Stamps: Beautiful Season, Petite Pairs
Inks: Black Stazon, Watercolor crayons, Early Espresso, Not Quite Navy
Papers: Not Quite Navy, River Rock, Early Espresso, Well Worn Designer paper, Watercolor Paper, Whisper White
Accessories: 2  1/2" circle punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Word Label punch, Aqua painter, Silver Glass Glitter, Mini Jingle Bell, Linen Thread, 1/4" Early Espresso grosrain ribbon, rhinestones, pearl, dimensionals.

Above is a close up of the focal image.  I watercolored the bird twice, and cut one image out and superimposed it on top of the other.  Before attached it with dimensionals I attached a mini jingle bell through which linen thread (one strand) had been inserted, to the back of the beak.


This side view shows the mini jingle bell in its beak
