I’ve been having fun using this 2018 set from Art Impressions called Spring Chicken. You might remember the last card I made with it HERE. This time, I’m using this trio of chicks all dressed up and ready to party! I thought this would be a great image to use for the current AI challenge theme All Layered Up! I watercolored this image with Tombow Markers and added white and black gel pens to their eyes. I watercolored the chicks first, then picked patterned paper from my stash before coordinating the colors on the balloon, cupcake and hats. The focal die cut was a magazine freebie called Layered Frames from Papercraft Inspirations Magazine. I used a MFT sentiment from The Whole Herd for the front, and used 2 sentiments from the AI Spring Chicken set for the inside. I think they worked so well together!
That’s it for me today but I’ll be back soon. If you like critter cards, I think you will really enjoy the next few projects!!! Stay tuned!
