Just Hatched




Since we recieved about 5 inches of snow in less than 3 hours, I shut myself in my basement and played with a few new things!! I know that's no where near the quantities alot of you see...but here in central Ohio...that's like 12 feet!! LOL!

I just love this little chick from Stampendous. To color the egg I used the technique Painted Pearls. Beate has a great tutorial for this technique HERE. I have one Aquapainter dedicated to Future Floor Wax, that way it is always available. The chick itself is colored with Water Color Wonder Crayons and an aquapainter. I'm not sure about the white outline. I wanted to hopefully make her "pop" alittle, but I'm not sure I achieved that. LOL!

How about a sketch for you to try!!! This one was given to me by Keri during a VSN Weekend with several friends. Thanks Ker!! This card was Cased from Keri's original. I told Keri that working nights has affected my stamping mojo...original ideas are just not flowing freely. LOL!! I'd love to see your take!! Feel free to post a link in the comments!
