Good morning! It's time for another challenge from the ladies at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight Pat has chosen our challenge and it is..."April Showers Bring May Flowers"...what a fun theme!
I chose one of the adorable Calendar Chicks from my collection...I love them! (I use a lot of digis so it was fun to actually stamp for a change of pace!) As I was looking through my papers for a delicate floral, I came across this fun paper and knew it would be perfect. The chick is colored with pencils; her eyes are accented with a black gel pen, the umbrella is coated with glitter, and the flower has a pearl center. I've done some simple layering and embellished with a flower/pearl. Clean and simple...it's fun for a change! Here's a close-up:
