Chicky's Water Adventures


I was supposed to be working on my sister's baby shower invitations early this morning when I got up, but I had an idea for the chick in Just so Hoppy to have her adventure in the water. But, she really didn't want to get wet (she's high maintenance at times) so she decided to 'hop' on her colorful umbrella and ride the lake waves with the sun shining at her back. Ah...this is the life.

Used my lilypad wheel again but hand drew the water line, shoreline, cattails, grass & sponged the sun on with the circle punch cut out. And used my stencil for the clouds. Sentiment is Things Hanna Would Say. This was stamped on watercolor paper & colored with aquapainter & ink refills. Pin It

Donna?! OMGosh! You just took the chick to a whole new level! THIS IS AWESOME!!! I was like, *how did she make those lilypads and flowers, ok the wheel--great thinking! But your skill on the water, grass, cattails and coloring are what really make this card a *wowzer stunner*! I adore how you made her standing on the umbrella crossing the water...she doesn't want to ruffle those feathers, lol! This is so very creative and wonderful! Thank you for creating it and sharing it! It's the most adorable card I've seen so far with this set! (you better have entered it!) HUGS!
