To My Favorite Chick
Hello everyone and happy Monday! Hope it's been a good one for everyone, it was a typical busy one at work today so I was feeling like I needed some "therapy" when I got home! lol Nothing like crafting therapy to make the day better!! So here's a card I made for the CCCC #13 over at Two Scraptastic Gals. This week's challenge you could use either Storybook or Wrap it Up, and since I don't have Wrap it Up, you get the idea.... I chose to make the cockatoo. The card base and map are from Recollection, the pp is from one of my first paper pads I ever purchased, K & Co. I did the shading on the cockatoo with a combination of colored pencils and Pebbles Inc. chalks. I added Stickles to his eye and some of the pp and on the butterfly that I punched with a Martha Stewart stamp and punch combination. The ribbon is from Joann's and I added some stitching with my Gelly Roll pen. The sentiment stamp is from My Pink Stamper. Looking at the picture now, I think I need to practice my coloring though, not really happy with the way the bird turned out. Oh well, it's all fun. I hope you like it and that you have a great week! Thanks for stopping by.
