Cute Chick




I finally broke down and ordered this chick stamp set. I have had my eye on it for awhile. It's geared toward Easter but I know I will use the chick image year round. I loved this sketch from iheart2stamp. To make the embellishment at the bottom of the card I mixed crystal effects with Soft Sky reinker and then painted it on the 1/2 pearls from the Pretties kit. Check out Kurtis' blog here to see how it's done.

Recipe:
Stamps: A Good Egg, Sanded background stamp
Ink: So Saffron, Creamy Caramel, Soft Sky
Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, watercolor paper, soft sky monochromatic designer paper, Afternoon Tea dp(brown strip going across card)
Other: 1/2 pearls from pretties kit, crystal effects, 1 3/8" circle punch, circle scallop punch, stampin' dimensionals.

I didn't get much stamping done last night with my friends. We did a lot more gabbing than stamping. That's ok because what I really wanted and needed was some girl time. I know you all know what I mean!

Isn't he just the cutest!!! Love the 3 pearls on the bottom. I wonder if SU will start to carry the pearls as an accessory, like the buttons and brads! Wouldn't that be AWSOME!!!
