Bloggers Challenge-Sketch Challenge

For this week’s Bloggers Challenge we have a Sketch Challenge to follow.
BCmarchsketch
ShellySchmidtMarchFCDcloseupI used a new Digital stamp just released by Firecracker Designs by Pamela .
I used a Technique Junkies technique from 2005 called Geometric Overlay- the TJ group has challenged us to revisit this prior technique- and I enjoy the outcome on this card- I will definitely use it again.I printed out the image (twice)- then did the technique on one of the images- and layered the chick and the eggs.
   Are you on Facebook??? If you are, join the Firecracker Designs by Pamela FB group- now through 3/31 you will recieve a discount in the store.......!

 I used all yellow inks- except for the stem- so consider this a monochromatic card- I used a combination of SU inks and Copic markers- plus added some glitz with a Sakura Gel Pen on the eggs. There are two rows of straight stitch sewing around the outer edge of the card- not sure if you can see it in the photo (I used white thread...).

Cool idea, to run your inked paper through the printer - I bet you got a lot of geometric overlay bits out of it!
