Hay chick!

I was browsing through a CK magazine the other day and thought to myself "Why do I get this magazine? I haven't scrapbooked in forever?" And then I saw this layout for a scrapbook page and realized it's because I love to look at the possibilities of taking a page layout and turning it into a card layout!

I used Anna Wight's Crazy for Chickens set. I took some liberties with the chick by giving her a black and white polka dot *coat*. Although if you've seen some of Anna's chicks, a polka dot coat is pretty tame compared to some of them! LOL

Here's a close up of the center panel. I used a rectangle Nestability and smoodged Antique Linen ink around the edges, followed by Spiced Marmalade (both Ranger Distress Inks). *Smoodged* is a technical term meaning to rub ink in a circular motion with a foam blending tool along the edge. :o)

So, what inspires you these days?

Stamps: Whipper Snapper Designs
Paper: Heidi Grace, SU!, Prism
Ink: Memento, Ranger Distress Inks, Copic Markers (all from Eclectic Paperie)
Misc: buttons, tracing wheel, photo corner punch, scallop border punch, Nestabilities, brad
