I just love the "Hey Chick" Sale-A-Bration stamp set, and knew it would be perfect for this week's Global Design Project #072 Case the Designer challenge
This chick's wild hair inspired me to give her a non-traditional color scheme...and who wouldn't love to get such a funky chicken in their mailbox?
I stamped the chicken on Whisper White card stock cut into a square with the Stitched Shapes Framelits with Archival Basic Gray ink. I then colored the chicken using an Aqua Painter and Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight inks. Some Clear Wink of Stella gave the chicken just the right amount of sparkle to go with her ombre' coloring.
I used Archival Basic Black to stamp the small sentiment in the lower right corner of the card stock square. You'll want to plan for this, so don't just stamp the chicken in the middle of the square.
Before adhering the Whisper White square to the Rich Razzleberry card front, I used a sponge dauber and Whisper White Craft White Ink to make the large polka dots.
I adhered the Rich Razzleberry card front to a card base cut from Basic Gray card stock.
Now it's ready to make someone's day!
