Hey Chickie!

Happy Wednesday to you!  This week is seriously beating me up!  I won't go into a long winded story about it but it has been quite stressful and I am so thankful for this hobby.  I was able to take my frustrated energy and make a card for the latest Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Perty & Flirty.  I seriously can't seem to put down the Chubby Chums set by Paper Smooches.  So so cute!  Instead of doing my usual literal approach, I just pulled the colors from the photo for my card.


Starting with some patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy collection, I layered a piece of yellow onto it from Pink Paislee which I muted with vellum.


I stamped my image onto the vellum, let it dry for a good while and then colored it with Copic Markers.


I added a bit of black and white Baker's Twine and some black buttons like on the front of the coat and stamped my sentiment in black.


Here is the inspirational pic:


I hope you enjoyed!  Gallery Idol voting for the first round ends tomorrow at noon, so if you haven't cast your vote yet, do check out my sidebar and vote for me!  Thank you!!!!

Lindsay
