While trying to decide which Whimsy image to use this week... as soon as I saw the new image "Easter Chicken" by Lia Stampz I giggled. It reminded my of my little chicks. They have already grown so much!! They have started showing all their wings! I'll try and get a photo for tomorrows Animal Crackers! Too cute! And isn't this image too cute?
He is such a sweet little chick especially in his striped shorts! I colored with my Copics (colors below) then I added more color and shading with my pencils. Haven't done that in a while. I was ok.. then I tried to add splashes of paint from the brush... didn't work and I was really upset with myself. But I stayed with it. Sometimes I figured you have to just live with it. I added some spring papers from First Edition called "Spring Drop" I found pink green and purple card stock to put with them. Sewed all the layers together, and then printed out the sentiment "Happy Easter" also from Whimsy. "Easter Sentiments" is a fabulous set for your cards - Really gorgeous Sentiments. I remembered my Martha Stewart Chick border punch. A gift from one of my favorite ladies :0) I punched out one punch and used it to top my sentiment, after I colored the grass green.
I added a little bit of Flower Soft to my Chick... Now he looks a bit more fuzzy like my chicks :0) I added very little to his head, as I didn't want to loose his adorable face.
Here are my Copic colors -
I can hardly believe that Easter is so close! I am still getting organized and getting ready for 2013... and now we are at Easter! Guess I better make time file things and finish organizing huh? Maybe I can find a few hours for that this coming week. Maybe...
All righty, gonna run for today. Chores today so I can play this weekend. I hope I can get everything done, I would love to have a relaxing weekend next weekend will be a mad rush getting things ready for our next Antique Show. Yes, Relaxing Weekend that is on my wish list for the next couple of days. We will see....
