Christmas Chicks

More of these super cute little chicks today. These three are all separate little stamps. I started by stamping the circle dot frame first using Pearlescent Sky Blue and Orchid Brilliance inkpads and then stamped each of the little guys into the frames using Brilliance Starlight Black which is more of a dark grey with a slight shimmer to it. I then punched them out using a 1 1/2" circle punch and layered them to some scalloped circles which I had already cut using my Large Scallop Circle Nestabilities.

For the light blue panel I stamped and embossed the Starbursts using Versamark ink and clear embossing powder and for the darker blue panel I randomly stamped the Large Dot Swirl using Graphite Black Brilliance. The wording was stamped onto a scrap of the same light blue card - cut into individual words and edged with the black inkpad.

The colouring of the chicks was done using first of all Polycolor pencils and a Splender pencil to polish away the pencil lines and then glittery Sakura Stardust pens were used to create some subtle sparkle. To make the fur on their hats sparkle I used a glue pen and fine prisma glitter.
