Hatchling

I borrowed this concept from a sample I’d spotted at SCS; the use of raffia for a “nest” was just such a clever idea!

This was inspired by Jessica Witty’s spread in the Stamper’s Sampler Take Ten, Winter 06 issue, p. 95. I thought it was so neat how she’d used markers to create these striped backgrounds, and then overlayed images stamped in black ink. It really made the images “pop”. So, I messed around with creating a plaid effect directly on the rubber image by inking first with apricot ink, then taking a pink marker and creating the plaid effect. I kinda like it!

The edges were tapped against craft/pigment ink in a deeper pink, and then embossed with irridescent clear embossing powder. I used pinking shears to replicate the petals on the punched out daisy, to the flower featured on the stamp image, to create an echo effect.

All images, papers, inks by Stampin’ Up!

I heat embossed by using Irridescent Ice embossing powder over Craft (pigment) inks. I think the postage edge scissors are by Fiskars. The EP is a clear base with irridescent ultra fine glitter in it–I love the effect and think I’ll have to buy a few more bottles of it so I never run out.

I didn’t have a lot of time; promised to take the kids to dinner–my son won the free throw contest for the kids in his age group! I watched in amazement as my 9 yr. old didn’t miss one free-throw. Naturally, we had to celebrate! Then, I treated the kids to a rarity: the cinema! Now showing: The Pink Panther. Steve Martin just cracks me up–I *love* him!
