Stampin' Sisterhood Challenge at Rubbernecker!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter Day! Ours will be quiet, as both my kids are grown and live hundreds of miles away. I wish I could go be with them! 

Today at the Stampin' Sisterhood blog we are in Week 2 of our new monthly challenge. This month's is a sketch challenge, which I love. So easy to put together as I don't have to think about where to put things!
HERE is the link with all the details on what you could win and how to link up to the challenge!

I made a card using the sweet chicks from Rubbernecker called Chick with Chicklettes. I think the image is so cute.

And here is the Sketch:
I stamped my images in VersaFine Onyx Black ink on Strathmore watercolor paper and then used reinkers and a watercolor brush to color them in. I cut out with my Grand Calibur and Grand Ovals Nestabilities. My background is the Polished Stone Technique. I have a tutorial here. I wanted it to look like chicken feed! The sentiment is a Heidi Grace sticker that says "sunny."

There are still two weeks left in the challenge, so I hope that you will come and play along!
