I need to make a few cards for downline members and I wanted to take advantage of the Sale-A-Bration sets while they are still available. The MFT sketch #325 seemed like it would work well with the Hey, Chick stamp set. The colors were inspired by an older ColourQ combo (#360), changed to current colours. I really wanted to keep the word bubble and a couple of years ago, we had the Word Bubbles Framelits, which I still have and would have been easy to pull out. I was trying to keep the supplies I was using current so that the resulting card can be more useful for team members, so I was looking at my current Framelits and Thinlits and the second I spotted the Frozen Treats Thinlits, I knew I could make my own word bubble with a Circle punch and the tip of the ice cream!
The background and layer were dry embossed with the Brick Wall and Hexagons embossing folders. The little red banner piece was stamped with Delicate Details, another SAB stamp set. The hen was colored with the Watercolor Pencils. I colored with the pencils directly on my stamped image (using the Basic Black Archival ink on Shimmery White cardstock) and then I spread the color around using an Aqua Painter brush. The colors used are red, orange, blue and green for the feathers, with a bit of grey shading on the rest of the bidy, and yellow for the legs and beak.
An enamel heart from the Regals Enamel Shapes pack was added to the bubble. (You'll notice I ordered the English stamp set for a change... I decided to forgo the French for the chance to have a wood-mount stamp set. Yup, I'm still not over those.)
