Tim Holtz Distress pad in vintage photo over the painted surface and quickly rubbed it into the paint.
For my image I stamped the chickadee in Versafine Black on vanilla card stock then colored with Prismacolor pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits and a blending stump. The image was cut out with a circle Nestabilities, then I masked the chickadee and sponged a sunny yellow around him. He is layered on a chocolate brown scalloped circle. The background paper is from Basic Grey the Indian Summer collection. I used the Victoria Cuttlebug embossing folder on it then sanded it and sponged with Tim Holtz antique linen distress ink. I added the verse, some chocolate ribbon and some fun corduroy brads to finish it off.
