City Chick

Hello.  Welcome.  I really liked this card by Becca so decided to make my own version with this very cool Stamplorations chick.  I made an ATC. 

Bwahahahaha.  This was actually my second attempt at Becca's technique for simple watercolour shading.  The first one went a little pear shaped.  But I got there in the end.  Or here at least.  I cut my ATC using a Sizzix die.  Then I stamped and masked the chick from Stamplorations Fowl Play.  I stamped the splat and postmark stamp from Grunge Elements then coloured using distress inks.  Becca set her panel on a coloured background, but since I was working on an ATC I decided to use some washi tape around the edge to make a colourful border.  Then I stamped the Happy Birthday to finish. 

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  4. So cool! This ATC definitely isn't pear shaped, regardless of how the first one turned out! Love the idea of the washi tape around the border!
