Party Chick

Today's SCS Challenge was to use a bird on your card. I love birds, I watch them all the time in my garden and yard, but surprisingly, I don't have many bird stamps! My friend Wendy sent me dozens of stamped images, and among them was this little BBQ chick! So for a fun card, I decided to use him! I used Taylor's Sketch #21 for my layout. It's too late to submit, but I thought it was an interesting sketch and I tend to use the same style a lot of the time!

In order to give my bright red & white gingham a more toned-down look, I colored it with a More Mustard marker and dried it with my heat tool! Thanks for looking, have a great day!

I love this. Great idea to tone down the gingham using your marker. I have one of these chicks that I need to ink up one of these days. Your card is a great inspiration for me. Thanks!
