Good morning! It's time for a new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight Shaz has chosen our challenge and she would like to see "Red, White, and Blue". Sounds fun!
Of course, I immediately thought patriotic, but then I saw the scraps of patterned paper on my table from a card I had recently made...I decided to go Christmas because aqua is blue, right?! You bet! I thought of my Santa Chick image (yes, I have a "thing" for chicks/birds!) and went in search of a sketch to use that would work with a smaller image. I found the perfect sketch at Jo's Scrap Shack:
The chick is colored with pencils and her hat, the holly berry, and the ornament are accented with 3 different kinds of glitter. I have done some simple layering with the image panel and switched placement to the opposite side so the chick wasn't looking off the edge. The holly leaves with the sentiment were stamped on white, cut out, colored, and adhered in place. Funny how it seemed like such a great idea until I was trying to cut those tiny leaves out..lol! I've also added a touch of glitter to the holly berries in the sentiment. Sadly, the photo does not capture the sparkly goodness of this card.
