The theme for the challenge this week at Eureka Stamps is 'things with wings'. I chose to use the images chick with worm (number 5904(190)) and enjoy life (number 22202).
I coloured the chick using Promarkers and then cut round the wing and raised it up. I stuck a piece of card coloured yellow behind the aperture formed. I then stuck on a wobbly eye and covered the chick with yellow flower soft. I used Glossy Accents on the worm.
When dry I wrapped several rows of raffia round the lower edge so that the worm appeared to be pulled from the ground. The various grasses were created using the Tattered Lace small panorama grass die. They were coloured using Promarkers and arranged in rows behind the different layers of raffia.
I then matted the whole design onto dark green hammered card.
