Spring Chickens

This week’s challenge on the iCopic blog is to use red Copics to color an image.

I decided that in the midst of winter, it would be good to have a little taste of spring. So I chose a Stampavie stamp that featured baby chickens.

I love Stampavie stamps — especially the ones designed by Sarah Kay. They are sweet and bring out all sorts of feelings of warmth. I think they just want to reach out and hug you!

I used DCWV papers from their Green Stack — made from recycled paper. I love the texture on these papers and it’s easy to mix and match the patterns.

I added buttons, a brad and a flower from my stash and a bit of Distress Ink to add some color/dimension to the flower.

Here are the colors I used …

I used the chisel end of the dark brown (E44) to edge each of the papers. I think it gives it a nice, finished and professional look.

  1. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody
    else encountering problems with your blog.
    It seems like some of the written text on your content are running off
    the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them
    as well? This might be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Kudos
