I really need some new Easter stamps. This card was made with my old, retired Best of Cluck set from Stampin' Up. The Memory Box Curved Happy Easter die created a hillside on which I stamped the chicks. They're watercolored all loose and easy on 140 lb hot press watercolor paper.
I added grass with an old D.O.T.S. stamp (now called CTMH). What manner of hen would hatch a brood like that? Well, there she is, calling to them from the hilltop.
The sky was painted onto my new Strathmore Mixed Media vellum surface paper. It looks just like a cloudy sky, doesn't it? So easy. I painted water onto the panel, then dabbed ink and moved it around only minimally.
Inside there's a chick just hatching:
The hatching chick was colored with Copic markers. Supplies are all listed below.
We've got rain and wind again now, so maybe I'll get more stamping done. I hope you all have a stampingly wonderful weekend!
