Do you think I could find a feather? No .... a trip to the local craft shop ... plenty of flowers, butterflies, glittery stuff gorgeous papers and lots of other things I would have liked but NO FEATHERS!
Now I do have some Feather stamps .. but I just couldn't get the look I wanted .... arrggghhh so I thought I would give this challenge a miss ... but then I remembered we have two chooks in our back yard.
here chookie chook chook .... come here and I'll give you a little pat ....aaahhh isn't that nice ... SQWAAAAACK ... oh don't be so sad chookie I only took one. Nah only joking :) We do have two chooks but I found this laying in our back yard so NO ANIMAL WAS HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS CARD ha ha ha
Well enough waffling on .... I used the very sweet Lil Kellita stamp from Tickled Pink and coloured her with the following copics:-
Top and Head Scarf - V12, 15, 17
Pants - E71, 77
Eyes - G21 & YG06
Bird - B23,24 & Y15, 17
Hair - C1, 3, 5, 7 and E49
Lips & Eyelids R20
Skin E000, 00 02
My trick with the hair is to colour with the Cs then go over the dark areas with E49 then back over the brown with C7 ... turns out black! Don't know if this is how most people colour black hair but it has worked for me so I'm very pleased.
I used a lovely embossing folder for around the 'frame' and added a touch of colour and at the base of the tree is my chooks feather. It kind of looks like a frond or a small feathery tree which I like.
Here is a close up of Lil Kellita ... isn't she sweet.
