Sunrise Chickadee

Our Daily Bread Designs challenge this week is to make a "scene" on our card.  I do enjoy doing this and have been practicing with the brayer.  I am far from having it perfect-can't seem to get those pesky roller lines out of the scene- but I do like the colors for this week's ODBDSLC97 card. I am also entering this in the Word Art Wednesday challenge, which is to use scripture or encouraging words on the card. 
Certainly Celery and Old Olive ink are brayered for the grass and some So Saffron is sponged at the horizon.  Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and Vintage Violet make up the sky.  The sun was masked.
One of my all time favorite stamps is the sweet chickadee from ODBD (You are My Refuge).  I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo black and colored him in with Copics, then hand cut the image out and adhered it to the background on dimensionals. 
I hope you like the finished product.  Thanks for visiting my blog.  Comments are greatly appreciated!

Edit 2/25/12- This card was a winner for the ODBDSLC on 2/18/12.
