Rainbow Chick


I've really been enjoying Jen Rzasa's Runway Inspired Challenge despite the fact that I am so completely fashion challenged - jeans and a sweatshirt all the way for me thank you!  I love seeing everyone's interpretation of the pictures and it's forcing me to examine things more closely and with a more open mind.  Always a good thing.  Anyway this week is this totally cool chick in a fabulous rainbow dress so where did my brain go?  To a rainbow feathered bird of course!  I've had the feathers kicking around for a while so I was pleased to put them to use along with a few more scraps of patterned paper and some more Purple Onion Designs stamps.  :)  


Cardstock:  (Kraft) PTI
Patterned Paper:  (Quince and Smoke from the Ambrosia collection) Basic Grey
Stamps:  (Curly Bird, sentiment from Flower Framed Doodle) Purple Onion Designs
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

Copics:  R29, BV23
