DAY 3 - IO CHA Sneak Peeks! - Little Chickie....


Welcome to Day 3 of the Impression Obsession 2014 Spring Release Designer Hop!
We have some beautiful CHA peeks to share AND Gift Certificates to give away each day!!!
The hop will start each day with a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog at 6am EST. Each day pay us a visit and then head over and see our fabulous IO Design Team’s projects with our new stamps & dies on their blogs (only one comment per blog per day please). The more blogs you visit each day the better chance you will have to win!
Every day (Monday Jan 6th – Friday Jan 10th) one of the blogs will be chosen randomly and a winner will be selected from comments on that blog at 10pm CT. The winner will be announced the following day along with the participating blogs for that day.
Two prizes will be awarded on the last day of the hop. One will be for Friday’s comments and another will be chosen from all the comments left throughout the week. So if you miss a day or time deadline your comments will still count for a chance to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate! Both Friday winners will be announced on the IO Blog on Saturday. 
 Who can resist little chickies? Not me! This new little chick is too cute and makes a quick card to color. I had some Jillibean Soup paper with the umbrellas that worked perfectly along with the new sentiment April Showers.
 I softly airbrushed using R83 while the image was still in the nestie. I also left it in the nestie to add a little piercing around the inside edge. 

 Here are the Copic Markers I used for the image. I chose my colors by trying to match them up to the printed paper I was using on the card. 

I added several circle die cuts, layering them with the IO Circle Shaker Frame Die on the bottom. Some foam tape in between adds a little dimension. I also like the banner that hangs past the side.... adds for a little interest, doing something different.
