I was so thrilled to play with this set...

Freshly Made Sketches 270

and
Color Throwdown Challenge 425


I placed an order with Stamping Bella Stamps and just had to get the "Cool Chicks Collection".
Then I found these two challenges and knew this was a great set.

I started with a white card stock base card and cut out a strip for the blue stripe as well as the black stripe.
The black card stock stripe I ran through the BigKick with the Sizzix Tim Holtz brick wall embossing folder.
I glued both pieces on the card to match the sketch then stamped the verse from the stamp set using StazOn jet black ink.
On a separate piece of white card stock I stamped the chick on the wall using the black ink.
I colored him or her using Design Spectracolor pencils then cut him out and glued him to the wall on top of the verse!
