Favorite Peeps

CB - Memory Box
B&T papers - CTMH
Stamps - A Muse
Ink - Memento
Copics & Spicas
Flower Brad - Making Memories

In one of Julie's AMAP classes, we used these chicks and this sentiment - one of the chicks had the mini party hat over her head (it was a b-day card).....making that reminded me how much I like these 2 stamps and I hadn't used them since Easter, 2007!! So I hunted them down, dusted them off and decided to make a non-Easter Friendship card. Just sort of a thinking of you to send to a friend type of card - everyone likes "fun mail"!!!

Wanted the colors to be bright and fun but the B&T print had to be on the smallish side since the stamps themselves are so small. The blue flower brad was the perfect accent (IRL the blue is spot-on to the blue in the B&T paper). I made the middle chicken kind of wacky with crazy feather-hair using my Orange & Peach Spicas, I also went a bit darker when I colored her with Copics. I used the fine bullet-tip of the Rich Cocoa Memento Marker and created a bit of "scratch" for the chicks to peck at.......they'd be bored otherwise!!

Hey, you know how I said I'd be sharing a few photos of my "stamping place"??? Well, I've taken a few more and I'll be posting them later. I know that I'm interested in seeing what my fellow-stampers spaces are like and what tools they use (and sometimes why), so I hope these side trips are semi-interesting and a little bit helpful!!!
