Mornin' hens! Today is Lil' Chick's birthday!
As I was digging through my stamp collection I came across this adorable Penny Black stamp. It has HAPPY written all over it to me. Oh, I do love me some Penny Black images. SUPER CUTE!
Ok, so I decided to keep the card simple and let the colorful image be the focus. I just love the clean and simple look! Ok, so I stamped the image onto some Neenah Classic Crest coverstock and colored it with my Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I added some Glossy Accents to the balloon and their eyes, and then I cut the image out using a stitched rectangle die. To add a little interest, I scored the card base using my paper trimmer and the score blade, one half inch in from each of the four sides, creating a cross hatch look on the corners. It's not that visible in the photo but it makes a barely noticeable frame around the image. Oh man, I do LOVE this card!! To finish, I tied on some baker's twine and adhered the image with some foam tape. Ta-da! Have I mentioned I loveeee this card?? Tee-hee! I hope you hens have a FABULOUS Friday!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DINKY!!
