Looking forward to Easter.

Awwwww, who doesn't like a little baby peep.  I did the background with Distress ink "Scattered Straw" and "Faded Blue Jeans" reinker.  I put the ink on my craft mat and sprayed lightly with water.  I pressed the tag in and got this beautiful background.  I made the flowers using Tim Holtz " Tattered Floral Garland" die.  I stamped the baby chick on white cardstock with Sepia ink.  I colored it in using my distress markers and my water brush.  when it dried, I went back in and used the fine point of the pens to add detail.  I printed the song lyric, cut it and glued it in place.  Then decided to outline it with a black pen to help it stand out.  I also decided to outline the chick and draw in some of the  detail that I felt got lost after I colored it.  I added the butterfly and called it done


  1. That little peep is so cute! You did a great job with the colors and I love that butterfly. where did you get it. Okay, your up, whats the next challenge?

    1. I got the butterfly from the jewelry section at Michael's a couple years ago when I was doing crazy quilting. You got like six butterflies on a string. I'm gonna have to think about the next challenge. I'll let you know.
