Hey Chick! for Easter | Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Rachel Tessman

Hello and welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Rachel Tessman from the United States. Rachel has been a demonstrator for 17yrs, and her blog 'Stamp your art out!' is full of inspiration, I particularly like her "outside the box" projects and her scrapbook layouts.  I was so tempted to CASE and create a scrapbook page, I have so many that I need to complete! In the end I decided to CASE the below technique that utilises the Fine Tip Glue Pen to create a resist image:

This is such a great technique that allows you to add sponging to a project without altering the colour of your image, here is my project:

The Curvy Keepsake box is one of my favourites, you can dress it up or down depending on your reason for creating a favour/gift box. I used the cute little egg from the Sale-A-Bration set "Hey Chick!" and stamped the lower edge of Curvy Keepsakes diecuts and then coloured with Watercolour pencils and a Blender Pen.

I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to cover the legs of my little chicks, when dry I sponged Wild Wasabi for a grass effect along the base of the box. I decided to sponge So Saffron on the top of the box too with the colour deeper on the handle and blending down to nothing towards the stamped chicks - kind of like the sun is shining :)
