Caroling Chicks - Stampingbella

I got a couple of new stamps from the latest Stampingbella release and this cute Caroling Chicks was one of them.  The challenge this week at Bellarific Friday is an inspiration photo which was a little nerve-wracking for me because I have never done a challenge theme of that sort before but it wasn't hard once I got going.  The photo is:
These were fun little chicks to colour and the card worked up fairly quickly.  I love that bird with the antler hat but I keep looking at the little guy on the far right and wondering what he seems so annoyed about and why only the one little bird seems to care.  Everyone always says I overthink everything and this may be one of those times!

Lovely card Marilyn - I think I too would be wondering about that wee chick on the end. Love your colouring, and the bright candy accents are great.

I thought exactly the same as you when I first saw this image and wondered about the little guy on the right...I think maybe he doesn't appreciate the singing?!

It's a wonderful image and beautifully coloured with all the colourful details and sparkly touches :-) Fab design too!

Big hugs, Kat xx

Shelly Schmidt said...

This is such a cute image! I love the colors and the DP to match. The image makes me chuckle- there is always one in each group and the little guy on the end with his hands covering his ears is a stitch! Love that die you used as well.
