I'm Sorry...

Mornin' hens!  Isn't this little guy hilarious?  OMG, he makes me chuckle every time I look at him.  I stamped him onto some Strathmore watercolor paper and watercolored him using distress markers.  Of course, I HAD to add some Glossy Accents to the little puddle he made! {snort!}  I matted the image using my Perfect Layers tool and did some faux stitching around each of the panels with my tracing wheel.  Oh, and how 'bout that bow? Eh-hem, I dyed it myself!  Woot-woot!  I'm SUPER DUPER proud of myself.  I saw this  technique on YouTube so I wanted to give it a try.  I used chalk white seam binding and ran my distress ink pad over top of it.  Then, I spritzed on some water, squished it up into a ball, and ta-da! It blended beautifully.  I dried it with my blow dryer and then used my ribbon iron for a smooth look.  Soooo cute, right? Each spool has 100 yards.  WOW!  Just think of all the bows you can make with one spool of seam binding!  I'll put a link in the list of supplies below, where I found mine.  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a TERRIFIC Tuesday and I'll see ya back in the hen house real soon!
