Chick Card - Prismacolour pencil

Buh-Cah! Rise and Shine little chickie.

I used Prismacolour pencils to colour a Bloobel digital stamp to create a quirky fun card.

Putting It Together

I have long been a fan of Bloobel images. I love the quirkiness. But, though I have been buying them a while now, this is the first project I have used one *gasp*. I've been wanting to make something with them but finally got one to the top of my pile of To Do. 

Ambitiously, I always put multiple images on a sheet when I am going to do a print.

I used Prismacolour to colour up the chick and added a bit of Uniball white to the eyes.

I trimmed the chick with a stitched oval die with the intent of making something a little bit country. Then, while looking in my stash for background paper, I tried this scrap of green that was in my "to be put away" basket and loved how the green makes the image "pop". I love, too, how it picks up the little bit of green I added in the eyes. So, I trimmed it down to a panel and rounded the corners with a punch. I liked the rectangle with the oval.

I found this pre-done sentiment in the Kaiserkraft pad with a country theme and thought it perfect. The straw paper, too, just the right touch.

I used Distress ink, Walnut Stain and Ground Espresso, to darken/distress the edges of the straw paper and sentiment.

I used a nail buffer to distress the edges of the green colour-core panel. I added a dark olive gingham ribbon and popped up the sentiment with foam mounting tape. I adhered it all to a kraft card base to continue the country theme.

Inside, I used Wild Honey Distress Oxides with a My Favorite Things stencil to add a subtle sunburst to the corner and then stamped a retired sentiment from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
