Shannon's Sentiments Challenge #21
It's challenge time again at Shannon's Sentiments and is our hostess this week Kapree and she would like us to an animal on our projects. I just love this chick image from the Easter Time set, it is so versatile and can be used for all kinds of occasions. I have done something a little different this week and combined 3 images together.
I started by opening my Paint.net program and inserting the pocket banner from Shout Out set, I then added the next layer which was my chicks. I resized them and flipped the smaller one, then I added my sentiment (also from Easter Time set). Once I saved my new image together, I inserted it in to a word document and colored the image yellow. I then changed the color to blue so I could paper piece my chicks, added a little Copic YR04 for beaks. The paper is new stack my friend Heather got me for my birthday, she got it at Big Lots and it's from G.C.D. Studios. Some ribbon and a little bling to finish it off!
Now head on over to the blog here to see what rest of team has done! Don't forget to sign up for our customer blog hop on the 22nd, all the details can be found here. We also have a design team call going on. You can find all the details at this post.
