Club Anime Colour Challenge: Chick In Shell

Hi All,

For this month's Club Anime Colour Challenge, I decided to make a really fun and easy Gable Box!  I decided to showcase the Chick In Shell image - it kinda makes me laugh.  I just imagine that little chick on the inside if his shell talking to himself (and the voice is probably echoing off the inner walls!).

Here is the colour inspiration:


I took mostly the green from the photo, but added small amounts of yellow and purple to my project.  The base for my Gable Box is Certainly Celery CS, which was rolled with a Jumbo Dry Brush Wheel and Certainly Celery ink.  The handle was punched with the Wide Oval punch.  Then, there are 2 holes punched with my Crop-A-Dile, and I threaded Certainly Celery Poly Twill Ribbon through it.  Now, I know that Certainly Celery is not exactly the same green as the one in the picture, but I am taking the combo a little bit liberally (I don't have a heck of a lot of bright green around).

The rectangle panel is made up of Petals and Paisleys DSP, matted with Basic Black and Pale Plum CS.  I added 3 green Dew Drops to each side with Mini Glue Dots for some fun texture.

The chick was printed onto PTI White CS, coloured with Copics, and outlined with a Pale Plum marker.  I also sponged some Tempting Turquoise and Creamy Caramel ink, just to make a bit of a scene.  That was cut out with Oval Nesties, and matted onto a black oval.  It's such a cute doodly image - it was a fun one to just colour eratically - the chick looks slightly frazzled : )

Hope you enjoyed this simple and fun Easter project, and hop over the the Club Anime blog to see what the other girls have come up with!

Thanks for stopping by!
