Hey Chick!

Don't you just love that chicken? This is the Hen & Eggs rubber stamp by Whipper Snapper. I just love their images. They're so cute and whimsical. I only have two so far - this one, and the dog I used on this card, but I'm sure there will be more making their way into my collection before long! I found this at The Occasional Stamper, a stamp store I came across in New London, WI. It's a small store, but they had a great selection for their size. While I was there I was looking through their clearance bin and found that "Baaawk!" background stamp by Art Impressions on clearance. It's a match that was just meant to be!!

I colored the chicken with my copics, but only did a little shading on the chicken and the white part of the bowl. I used a cool blue shadow, so you can barely see it around some of the edges, but it's their. I love that color. I find myself using it a lot. The card itself is more of a square card, but it still fits in the A2 invitation size envie. Finished size is 4.5x4.25.

And here is the Inky Antics sentiment I stamped inside the card:

tee-hee! Isn't that just perfect? I love it!

Stamps: Whipper Snapper Hen & Eggs, Inky Antics Sentiment (inside), Art Impressions Background
Paper: Gable Green, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Black Cord, Copic Markers, Ticket Stub Corner Punch, Large (Giga?) Marvy Circle Punch

Here's take two of my new signature. I like this font (Scriptina) better. :o) I just figured out how to get downloaded fonts into PSE. Doh!

And don't miss the blog candy over at Nikki's blog!

Enjoy the day!
