Shopper Chick

Good morning!  I'm back with a new sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches...it's a fun one this week!

As I was tidying up my craft room the other day, I was looking through my stash of Calendar Chicks and realized it had been awhile since I used one of them, so I found a fun Christmas image and went with it!  She is colored with pencils and her eyes are dotted with a black gel pen.  Her packages are accented with glitter so they are nice and festive.  I've embellished simply with buttons and Swarovski flatbacks.

Image: Stampendous Calendar Chick
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Dark Chocolate, SU! Soft Sky, My Mind's Eye DP
Embellies: PTI Buttons, Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "AB"
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Art Glitter in "Polar Bear", The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I do hope you will check out the rest of the DT's cards and the challenge details too...this is our judged challenge and there is an optional "twist" as well...make a thank you card.  We would love for you to play along!
