Jenny's Coat Technique

     This adorable little chickadee is from Firecracker Design's set "A Little Bird Told Me". You know me, I am all about nature; birds, animals, trees, well you get the picture! This set caught my eye quite a while ago and Pamela was kind enough to let me play with it this month! You will see more of this set as the month goes on!

     This technique is called Jenny's Coat; this is one of the newest techniques from Technique Junkies. If you haven't ever visited their site you may want to check it out! You can join and every other month you will get a newsletter with new techniques, full instructions, and a list of supplies needed to achieve the results. Not only that but as a member you can go online and get visual tutorials for all the techniques! How's that for fantastic??!!
     Ok, to the card.....I stamped the bird with versamark (oops, to get all the details on the technique you will have to visit Technique Junkies).  I made the card for a color challenge from Christian Paper Crafts. Designer paper is from an old Basic Grey design, the base card is some white cardstock from my stash, not sure who made it, and of course Nestibilities were used for the ovals. I used one of the oval dies to draw the lines around the oval for more depth, the white gel pen just brought out some of the definition of the bird.
    I hope you enjoyed looking as much as I did making this one. A very simple card with a pretty big impact! Leave me your thought!
    Thanks for stopping by!!
