Spring Chickie!

I wanted to play along with another fabulous Whimsy and Stars Studio image for my post today and I decided that the image Spring Chickie would be perfect! It's just a sweet image, it just makes me smile, oh heck they all make me smile!

I have a blast each time I sit down and color in one of Mabelle's images, each image is so detailed and fun to work with. For this image I wanted to use lots of bright spring colors so I went with Ice Mint Copic Marker for most of her outfit with touches of Begonia on the flowers and some bright yellows to compliment the other shades. I used my Nestabilities Labels 14 to cut out the image and used some pop dots to make the image pop more, and if that wasn't enough I also got out a sponge and shaded the space around this cute Chickie!

Have you checked out the Whimsy and Stars Studio Store yet? Well if you haven't, what are you waiting for! You are going to love these fun images, they all make me smile, I know they will do the same for you! I wanted to create a little package of sorts that I could just send a thinking of you type of goodie inside, so I decided to make a pillow box and tie it off with some fun black satin ribbon.
