DYSU #61 - Things with WINGS

Hi everyone and welcome to a brand new challenge at DYSU!
This week, we want to see THINGS WITH WINGS on your projects!

We have two great sponsors:
Winner's Choice of 6 Digital Images

6 copic ciao marker (North/South America)
Martha Stewart punch (rest of the world)

Here is my creation:
This week, I decided to use this FABULOUS chicken stamp set called Get Well Chick from Paper and Such!  This is actually a sneak peek since this set will not be released until March 9th!  The sentiment is normally a bit wider and only two lines of text but, I used selective inking to make it fit the space I had.  I coloured the image with Copics (C00, C1, C3, E11, E13, E15, YR12, YR13, YR16, YG93, YG95, E40, E41, W0, W2) and paper-pieced the cute little hens.  The papers are from the Garden Variety 6x6 Paper Pad from Cosmo Cricket.  I cut out the image with Spellbinders Petite Ovals and sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old Paper.  I then matted the main image with Spellbinders Labels 10.  I did some stitching on the card and added some Kaisercraft Pearls in Latte, some twine from the Twinery in Charcoal, and a PTI Vintage Button in Terra Cotta Tile, and that's that!

I just ADORE these sweet little hens and this humorous sentiment and it sure has been a HIT with the rest of the DT gals at DYSU...I hope you all like it, too!  If you DO like it, watch out for the Release Day Blog Hop at the Paper and Such Design Blog on March 9th as one LUCKY winner will get the ENTIRE release!

I am also entering this card into the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #158 (FTTC158 - Country Comfort)

Anyway, head on over to DYSU to see what the other girls came up with and to link up your project!  I look forward to seeing what you create!
