This card is inspired by Viva la Verve December 2016 Sketch, Simon Says Stamp Monday (Be Square) and TGIF #89. I'm really happy with how this card turned out. This is the kind of cards that I feel brings a smile to your face when you are looking at it. Using the new Suite Sentiments stamp set, I made it a Thank You card because I needed to add one to my stash. The fun thing is that the set includes two thanks sentiment. I inked the first one with markers to make it three different colours. Then, for the one that has thank you repeated in various fonts, I used Sahara Sand ink and stamped it in full ink and stamped off ink in the background to fill out the space. I'm pretty pleased with the result.
The adorable chicks were colored with Prismacolor pencils. The nice thing about the latest Stamping Bella packaging is that it includes a colored picture of the stamped image on the front, so I was able to draw inspiration from it to add my shadowing, and that really helped. Practice makes better, and my coloring skills are still improving.
I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the four background patterned paper squares to make it a bit more interesting.
