Have You Heard?



I fell in love with this Chicky Night stamp by Penny Black a few months ago after seeing it on Paula Williamson's blog. (Michelle at Stamper's Dream was nice enough to special order it for me!) The stamp is actually a row of four chicks, but I modified it to fit Jen del Muro's "Sketch For You To Try" for this week. You can see the sketch, Jen's sample and guest designer Toni Whitnell's sample over at i{heart}2stamp. Carole, Shannan, and Susan each have samples as well. I hope you play along, too! Remember to use keyword SFYTT if you upload to SCS.

I trimmed out my chickies and placed them outdoors (fringed Wild Wasabi on top of Soft Sky). Kinda looks like the 19th hole on a sunny day! It's hard to see in the photo, but I created some clouds by sponging white craft ink into the negative space left by the scallop punch. All coloring is done with an aqua painter and reinkers. The chicks are a little glammed up with some Hero Arts bling.

Speaking of Stamper's Dream, sadly my time as guest designer has come to an end. Thank you, Michelle, for the opportunity to design for your store! You have a true heart of gold, my friend, and I feel richer for getting to know you a little bit during the last month!

Tonight I have my scrapbook club coming over for a make-and-take and some crop time. Tomorrow, I'll show you the spread they're making. No peeks for my club girls this time - I want it to be a surprise!

Thanks for visiting!
