Hey Chickie Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #58)

Hi everyone :o) 

My third post today... If you missed first two just scroll down or follow these links, here and here.

Today a new Aloha Friday Challenge starts at Kitty Bee Designs.

New challenge for this fortnight is #58 - Animals.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Digi Stamps, with an awesome prize for our random winner: 7 digital images of winner's choice. :o)

For this challenge I made this Hey Chickie Card, using our sponsor's funny image 'Hey Chickie'.

Image is paper pieced and it has three layers.

First I printed the image on design paper panel and colored it whole with black Stabilo pen (marker). When paper piecing, I always color image or parts that will be hidden (under layers) with black pen. If I make mistake when gluing everything together, that will be hardly visible because of black under layer. :o)

Then I printed two more images on a white watercoloring paper and colored it in watercoloring technique, using Stabilo pens (markers), fine brush and water. I learned that from a great video tutorial by Julia Altermann, how to watercolor using inexpensive Stabilo pens.

After coloring, I fussy cut colored parts, colored edges with black Stabilo pen (marker), glued two pieces together and glued them over the image printed on design paper.

I glued the panel on a white cardstock base, added some gloss resin on the image to create glossy accents and add more dimension to my card and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions are 107 mm x 139 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").
