Little Birdie

Hi peeps!  Happy Friday!  This has been one looooong week for me, and I'm so glad to be heading into the weekend!  And what better way to kick off the weekend, then with a Viva la Verve sketch?  This week's hostess with the mostess is Andrea, who designed this fun little sketch.

I started by stamping Chaz and the "a little birdie told me" sentiment from Chicks Rule on a Big Scalloped Circle, then matting with black.  I stamped Chaz again, colored with Copics and layered over the top, so his little curly cue stuck out over the edge.

The paper is all from the For the Record collection by Echo Park.  I added some opposing rounded corners, liquid pearl accents and some flatback pearls accented with a punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  For the center band, I used the Big Scallop die from TCP (although it's mostly covered, I still like the curve of it), then layered some black grosgrain over the top it.  I finished off with a cherry blossom glitzed up with some ink and a little chunky clear glass glitter.

Enabler's List:
Stamps:  Chicks Rule (Verve Stamps)
Paper: For the Record (Echo Park), Black, Ivory
Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine), Copic Markers, Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger)
Accessories:  Big Scalloped Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Big Scallop CutUps and Holiday Glitzy clear glass glitter (TCP), corner chomper (WRMK), Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and black grosgrain ribbon (SU!), mulberry cherry blossoms and flatback pearls (Pizzazz Aplenty), liquid pearls (Ranger)
