A Chick MFTeaser

I've been wanting to do Beate's sketch challenge that she has posted on her blog. I knew exactly what set i wanted to use too! So going to bed last night, I kept my fingers crossed that Emily would pick a color combo with a yellow or orange in it. First thing this morning i checked Splitcoaststampers to see what great color combo laid instore for today.

Real Red, Apricot Appeal and Ballet Blue. Yes!! I can work with those colors!!

I pulled out Eggstra Special Easter by My Favorite Things, due to be released Feb.6th, as I wanted to use the chick. (see why i wanted yellow so much as a color combo?) I stamped her on watercolor paper in black stazon ink. Using markers, I colored her in with Apricot Appeal. I used the aquapainter to remove some color so she wasn't so bright/dark. Each chick got a different color bow. I took ink directly from the ink pad to color in the sky (the white cardstock was just too stark for me).

On the Ballet Blue cardstock, I stamped a little chick, that resembles the main one, in Ballet Blue. This little chick is from an older set by My Favorite Things called Hoppy Easter. I made the little tag using the notched corner punch. The wording "Hey Chick!" is also from the Eggstra Special Easter set.

stamp set: Eggstra Special Easter, Hoppy Easter - My Favorite Things; paper: ballet blue, real red, apricot appeal, watercolor; ink: black stazon, blue ballet; accs: brads, notched punch, aquapainter, markers

My Favorite Things (http://www.mftstamps.com/) is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, February 6 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. Lots of fun is planned including finding out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. Head over to the MFT forum on http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ to find out all the details and join us there on Wednesday night.

Hope to see you there. I'm working on a project just for that night!
