Easter chick


Today's Inspiration and Themes Challenge over at In Love With Stamping is to create a project with an Easter theme - for all the stamps I own, I don't seem to have many specific Easter stamps but then I remembered this little bird from the Fun and Fast Notes set.

I masked off the matching sentiment, coloured him (or is it a her?!) with Copics and cut the image with circle nestabilites for the card and oval nestabilities for the basket.







I got the instructions for the basket from Jennifer's blog. Cardstock is Old Olive, I used the scallop border punch to make the scallops on the handle, added some So Saffron DSP and some of the yummy new Bashful Blue striped ribbon.

Speaking of yummy does anyone manage to make chocolate Easter gifts without nibbling on some of the contents??!! (Not me!)

Thanks for visiting!

Recipe:

Cardstock - Whisper White/Old Olive/So Saffron

HI Kate,

perfect stamp adaption for Easter (I don't have any easter stamps either). Great mix of colours and I like how you balanced the blue brads and the blue ribbon.

Ooooh Kate these are absolutely lovely. I had already vaguely thought of using this little chick for Easter cards and now I am totally convinced by your wonderful examples.
Thank you for sharing

I confess Kate, I did scoff more mini-eggs than I should've done making my Easter treats this year! Very cute job on your basket - that chick fits in the Easter theme perfectly!
Hugs,

The little bird works really well as an Easter chick. The colouring is lovely. Got to get on now and make my own Easter baskets for my co-workers.
