Cheerful Chick

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #64 – colors.

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #64

And here is my take:

by karen @ carefree creations - Cheerful Chick

Whew, this was a challenge! The color challenges at CCS do not allow any other colors (besides black and white) so a two color challenge is definitely stretching my muse! I must admit though, when I sat down and went through my stamp index, I came up with quite a few ideas – so I know it is possible (heck another idea is still stuck in my head, if I can grab some stamping time I will work on it)!

My sentiment was supposed to say “have a cheerful easter” but I ran out of room :D

I watercolored the chick and egg – and I’m really happy with how the egg turned out! I chose to watercolor because that meant I could get lots of shades with just those two colors (I used the the third color, Eggplant, for my sentiment).
