Hi Chickie!

So, I have a little story to go along with the three cards I made using these stamps the other day. I will start with the first card. Not much interesting with it to tell you (the story begins with the next card, I'll show you tomorrow) with this one. I'm making these cards to send to friends that I left at our last base because I know that (at least one of them) keeps every card I give her and you gotta love recipients like that!!! ;) Anyway, I just thought I would make some "hi chickie" cards using these cute stamps from Stamps by Judith. I am having fun improving on my watercoloring abilities. What do you think? You can click on this smaller up-close shot and it should show you all of my little flaws! ;) I'm still not quite sure what to do with the ground when I watercolor - I tried some variations on each of these cards. Stay tuned for "the story" on these cards and to see the variations I'm talking about, and have a great day!!!

Stamps: Chick (D-02), Pot (C-55), Tall Grass (B-73), Low Grass (C-32), bird track (didn't have a number on it) - all "Stamps by Judith", Rough Edges Mini Alphabets
Paper: Chocolate Chip and Old Olive CS, Old Olive Prints DSP, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Basic Black, Really Rust, Old Olive, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, and Bordering Blue Classic Inks
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Old Olive Poly-Twill ribbon and Stylized Silver HPH Flower ribbon slide (both in 2008 Occasions Mini Catalog), corner rounder punch (with guide removed to make scallops)
