Quick Minis

The Limited Supply Challenge today on SCS was to make small card or quick minis. I had time to make two and focused on fun spring card themes with chicks as the main image.  I chose a Rubbernecker’s On the Farm image for one and Anna Wight’s Bo Peep’s Sheep set for the other. I used Copic markers on the single chick and watercolored the momma chicken and her chicks.  What fun.



I stamped the main image with Brilliance Black Graphite, heat set and then colored with Copic markers.  I used a Copic Multiliner artist pen to sketch in the little wood planks for the coop in the background and colored with Copics.  I used decorative scalloped scissors to cut the white background layer for behind the image.  This card measures 3.5 X 3.5".


I stamped the images with Brilliance Black Graphite and watercolored the images with Adirondack Dye reinkers and SU Dye Reinkers. I used a large round brush to stipple on the celery ink for the ground and Blue for the sky.  I used my fern stamp to add texture and to add little cranberry flowers and greenery in the background. I used a square Nestabilities die to cut the scalloped layer.
