I will miss my little Living Large chickies when they retire. They'll have a permanent home with me!
This is another card for my stamp club...decided to use some of the spring mini paper for the background. The Amethyst piece is 5.25x4" and I cut rectangles of the patterned paper a half inch smaller than that, so 4.75x3.5. To cut them into triangles, I put one cattycorner on the paper trimmer and cut from one corner to the other, and then without separating them I scooched the pieces around and cut again on the other two corners. So half my cards have the pink on the sides, and the other half have it on the top and bottom. I could do six cards from one piece of the 12x12 paper.
The lady is colored in with a combination of colored pencils for her skin, markers for almost everything, and watercolor with ink pad lids for the vase. The sentiment is stamped on a Whisper White cardstock insert.
