A Little Birdy

Is this not the cutest little birdy (/chick) ever? I think it's adorable. I found it this weekend at a craft store, and it was only $1.25, so I couldn't resist. It's also a clear, cling vinyl, stamp which makes it even better (seriously, when will SU go to clear vinyl?). The image is by Imaginisce, and is part of their "For Peep's Sake" collection (according to the package it was in).

I colored the Chick with my Copics, and blended two different yellows (Y15 & Y17, if I remember correctly) to make her tummy a little darker. Then I used my colorless blender to soften the line where the two colors met. I'm getting the hang of those markers, slowly but surely.

I made this card for my boys to give their great-grandma for her birthday. I just needed something quick and easy, and this fit the bill! I hope you like it as much as I do. :o)

Stamps: Imaginisce Chick, Burst into Bloom, SU Birthday Sentiment (unsure of set name)
Ink: Gable Green, Basic Black
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Gable Green, Whisper White
Other: Marvy Scallop Punch, Copics, Sakura Black Gelly Roll Pen, White Grosgrain Ribbon

And here's a fun little website for any of you animal lovers out there. The pictures and captions are cute, though the "gangster" style of wording get under my skin just the tiniest bit. It's still fun to look at though.

Enjoy the day,

What a sweet little bird! It's funny the different tastes of stampers. I personally will cry if SU! ever goes to clear vinyl! Different strokes, as they say. Great card. TFS!

I love the border that you drew around the scallop. I think I might be with you on the clear stamps! I only have a few, and OH man.
