Hey! Chicky!

Thank you all So Much for all your kind words and Congratulating me for being on the Magnolia Design Team!! You all really made my Day!!!....How lucky can a gal get.......Big Hugs to all of you!!

I can't complain too much about the weather. These last few days have been very pleasant. So nice that we went to visit my daughter Trina over the weekend. We went shopping to every place that sold stamp and scrapbook things in Estevan. What a great time we had.....Trina and I did anyway.....don't know too much about the hubby's though. It's kind of funny how they always look so worried when Trina and I go shopping....lol....I can hardly wait to get together with her again....

On with the card.

This cute little Chicky is called "Easter Chickadee" and is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps I used diamond glaze on both bows and beak of the chick...glitter on the flowers and lace on the collar. The image and sentiment is popped up.

"Easter Chickadee" is colored with Prismacolor pencils (OMS) and H20's to deepen the shading.

Stamps: High Hopes Stamps (Easter Chickadee), Karen Foster snap stamps

Paper: whisper white, Michael's, Provo craft slab

Ink: versafine black, perfect plum, buckaroo blue, bashful blue

Accessories: baubles, brads, flowers, fibre, stardust pens, stickles, diamond glaze, glitter, stitching

***Many people have asked me about the coloring ...I have tried to answer as many as I could ...but some people who comment don't have their profile available to the public so I could not get their email addresses........I am planning to have a tutorial up within the next month..so hopefully that will answer a lot of your questions***

***Magnolia Stamps***

I've also had quite a few people ask me where they can get Magnolia stamps. Phebe from The Town Scrapper in Canada is the gal to email. I will put her link up on the bar....but you may also just click on here - The Town Scrapper. She will ship to US as well. Other than that I you can click on Magnolia on my side bar (where it states I am a design team member) I believe they will ship internationally***

Thank you all for looking and your Wonderful comments!! Have a Great Day Everyone!!!

kraftyaunt said...

Thanks for sharing such great ideas! Because of your blog, I have ordered from High Hopes stamps! And, I would like to share with readers - I have purchased Magnolia stamps straight from their website :-> without much difficulty. In fact, I've subscribed to their spring club member selection through the other website but for some reason I don't think it's going as smoothly for ordering. It's been almost a month now and I haven't received any notification.... So again, thanks for the link to another source for 'Tilda !

Oh My Ila ~ Once again just precious and beautiful coloring. I wrote to Tina-Marie at High Hopes Stamps and let her know that you were the reason I had ordered the "Hoopy Easter" stamp. I absolutely love all of her stamps and will be ordering again and again because of you. Now...if I can just learn to color like you :)

Here I am slinking over here again, Ila. I spend more time on your site than any other lately. I'm pulling out my prismacolours today and came to look at your work again, and I feel like such a thief! Seriously. Hope you don't mind.
