Hey Chickie...

Happy Saturday!

Even though I'm retired, I still get excited about weekends - just habit, I guess!
It's my day to post for Great Impressions, and I chose some of the newer
releases to showcase.  This little chicken is spending his weekend on the beach,
flip flops, and all!

For today's card, I used these Great Impressions Stamps:

The chicken was stamped and colored, onto the focal panel. 
Another chicken was stamped onto a post it note, and fussy cut, 
to use as a mask. 
The mask was placed onto the panel. 
The Beach Sand was stamped a few times, to give this little guy 
ample space to hang out. 
Once the sand was stamped, the water was hand drawn with a marker, 
and the sky was sponged with distress inks.
A Wink of Stella Brush Pen gave some sparkle to the sand and water, 
and a thought bubble was created for a bit of whimsy. 
Three little enamel dots were added as a finishing touch.

Hope you like him! I think he's a cutie patootie, for sure!

Don't forget about our GI challenge!

Love this fun card. Your chicken is colored in such a fun way that I thought it was paper pieced. I love that sand stamp so perfect for beach scenes.

Cute bird brain! I hope he put some sunscreen on those chicken legs of his. Our atc club theme next month is seashells, so this give me an idea for a beachy scene!
