I stamped this image onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter, sponged the grass and sky with distress inks, easy peasy, right? Ok now, the word bubbles were no trouble to die cut but, I had no idea what to write in them, they are small and I didn't have any sentiments small enough to fit or to make sense of this kind of precarious situation this chickens are facing so, I thought and thought and just arrived a the conclusion that I was going to have to really SHOP MY STASH and find some stamp sets with sentiments I could use to write inside the word bubbles something funny and related to the image.
Ok, the words on the big word bubble are stamped with 3 different sets. The word "Blow" is from a retired Flourishes set called "Pinwheels and Popsicles" the word "Candles" is from a retired SU set called "Whimsical Words", the words "up the" are from a retired SU set called "Up, Up and Away", the word "now" is from a set with very narrow letters that are really hard to stamp but I managed to form the word after a few attempts and the word "Yikes" I wrote it myself, there is nothing else this little baby chicken could actually say.
So, what do you think, eh? when you are in a pickle, and believe me, I was!! this is really a great way to pull out your old sets and combine a few of them to create something really nice. I did a lot of masking but, in the end, it was all so worth it.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.
Here I actually used the complete sentiment with the word "Candles", the cake is from another retired SU set called "A Slice of Life".
I hope you join us this week for this fun challenge at Shopping Our Stash, I certainly did just that to be able to put together this fun Birthday card.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
