Color Inspiration #38 - Hey Chick!

It's time for another Color Inspiration challenge from Kristina Werner!Isn't that paper fabulous? As soon as I saw it, I thought of this 'chick' single from Unity, and *new* I'd have to make a no-layer white card...
Super simple one this time (though it did take a bit of time to do that cuctom-color!)...I started with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of white CS, which I scored and folded in half to create my A2-sized card base. Then, I inked the entire chick stamp in Pretty in Pink, and used a baby wipe to clean off the beak, legs, and flowers and dots that I wanted in different colors. Then I used the corner of my Ruby Red ink pad to color the flowers ('huffing' on the stamp periodically to keep the ink wet), and used some Pumpkin Pie reinker with my blender pen to color in the legs, beak, and some of the dots. I 'huffed' on it one more time, and stamped to get the image. Then I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped the 'Hey Chick!' with Pumpkin Pie ink. To finish it off, I tied on some pink picot-edged satin ribbon. Very CAS, and I think pretty cute! *wink*
