Sketch Saturday - Sketch #272

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps and they are offering your choice of 7 digis as a prize! Woo!

I decided to go humorouscourtesy of a From the Heart Stamps digi called Flower Pot Chick.  It will add a smile to the life of a dear one who has had a rough go of it lately.  I love the sleepy eyes of this chicken and the sentiment that comes with the digi!

I used a flower punch and leaves from a PTI flower die to add the flowers around the left side of the pot.  I wanted the pot to be bright, and what is better than red with white polka dots?!?

I used a simple palette of Copics for my coloring.
flower pot - R24, 26, 29
chicken - Y13, 15, 24
leaves - YG 11, 13, 67

The flower centers are finished off with some liquid pearls in the centers.  I don't use them very often and was pleased with how easy it was to make very small dots for the flowers around the chicken and bigger dots for the punched flowers.

Our DT has some great ideas for inspiration.  Take a look over at the Sketch Saturday Blog and then play along.  You have a week to upload your card.  Remember the winner receives 7 digis from Bugaboo Stamps.
