Peep! Peep!

I love this ATC I made for a swap at The Stamp Shack. I used this great "chick with egg" digi stamp that I got at Lindsay's new on line shop. Click HERE for a link to her blog (The Frugal Crafter's Weblog) and once you are there she has a link in the left hand column to her store. I had never used a digi stamp before, but with Lindsay's how to's (also on her blog) it was a snap! I just love the idea of digi stamps to use along with my rubber and acrylic stamps. Digi stamps can be re-sized to be as big or small as you want/need, and they don't take up any room in my already too full studio! Here I used a digi stamp for the main focus and stamped the sentiments with my studio g dollar stamps. I punched one edge with my Martha Stewart punch. The image was colored with Bic Mark-its and a couple of PrismaColor pens.

Here are the Bic colors and what I used them on:

The chick was colored with Lemon Bliss and highlighted with Moonstone Yellow. The beak was colored with Adobe Orange. Next, I used Tranquil Teal and Lime Sorbet on the grass. I outlined the edges of the paper with Polynesian Purple.

I used PrismaColor Light Peach and Brick Beige on the egg.

I've already downloaded Ellie the Elephant, and I can't wait to get her colored and onto a new creation. Hmmm, maybe I can work her into one of the new challenges over at The Stamp Shack this week!
