Its a gorgeous Spring day here in Hampshire today. Cold and frosty this morning but the sun is shining - so uplifting to see a blue sky!! Here's a wonderful picture I took of the local River Anton when out walking with my two dogs. Here's my dogs just in case you haven't met them before - The English Springer on the left is called Bracken - he's our rescue dog and a right mad thing. Our dog on the right is Tegan, she's a Welsh Springer Spaniel and much better behaved. They are both great friends.
Back to crafting. I'm joining in with the challenge over at Global Design Project to CASE one of Michelle Lasts's cards. Here's her card for us to work with
Here's my interpretation.
I've used Honeycomb Happiness stamp set - that wonderful cute versatile little chick and the small flower from Birthday Blooms. Designer Series Paper in Subtles were used for the backgrounds and Early Espresso for the card. and So Saffron for the chicks.
A little trick with the chick. He has such cute feet but they are very tricky to try and cut round. I double stamped him and cut him out and fixed him with dimensional.
He is stamped in So Saffron and a touch of Pumpkin Pie with the flower stamp from Birthday Blooms. I did the stamp off technique so that the flowers weren't too dark - not sure if it shows up but it actually looks as though he has feathers.
A little bit of Wink of Stella on his beak finishes the chick off. The little flower was also stamped just around him.
Hope you like him - thanks for looking!
