Pause Dream Enjoy #35 You're So Tweet

Its time for another challenge at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges, and this time the theme is to use chicks or birdies on your project.  You're so tweet after all!  Here is what I came up with:


I started with the My Mind's Eye paper and and decided to also use the stamp set that was designed to go with the same collection.  Once this decision was made I choose the coordinating papers and trimmed everything to size.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and image in gold.


I coloured the image with coordinating Stampin' Up markers and inked all of the pieces with various shades of brown.  I added ribbon and twine, adhered all of the pieces together, and added pearls.  This is not a colour scheme that I am often drawn to but I am satisfied with the result. :)


Now its your turn! This week's prize is a $5 gift certificate from Clear Dollar Stamps.



Whether you link here or at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges your project will be entered into the same draw.  And don't forget, if you miss the deadline you can still join in the fun as you have until the end of the year to participate in this or any past challenge from 2012.
