Almost Spring Chicken

Springtime Rain Chick_Feb 2010

A yen to color was the inspiration for this card, my take on Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #102.

I used a combination of colored pencils and OMS and markers to color this cute chick. Her umbrella was paper-pieced. I’m loving the colors of the Caboodle paper packet – so springy!

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Crystal Blue cardstock; Caboodle paper packet; Black and Juniper ink pads; Holiday Red and Brown Bag markers; Whipper Snapper Designs Springtime Rain Chick stamp and Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages stamp set; Crystal Blue mini brads; Prismacolor colored pencils; Gamsol odorless mineral spirits; Blending stumps; Black My Legacy Writer; Dove blending pen.

How was your day? Mine was, for the most part, uneventful. Tonight, my aim is to keep it that way with a little stamping and then, a good night’s sleep. I gotta rest up, so I can bowl like a rock star tomorrow night. LOL. 

Thank you for the encouraging comments and your visits. You’ve got to know they mean the world to me. Enjoy the evening! Later …

Cute card! I love how you've colored the chicky - it's perfect and doing "white on white" is something I've had trouble achieving! Nice work!

I love your "bowl like a rock star" thought - hang onto that one!

Hugs!

Kathi, this is simply adorable! I, too, think the colors in that paper shout Spring! Love your coloring and your paper piecing.

I hope you got a full night's rest so you can indeed bowl like a rock star!
