FS103 Celebrate Vicky!

Good Sunday afternoon!
This card is for today's FS over at Splitcoast, Vicky Gould! She is terrific and leaves such nice comments! I saw several chicken cards in her gallery and found her 'shroom card to get a sketch for my card.
This is a new chicken by Anna Wight for Whipper Snapper. It's really cute, IMO!
I stamped the chick on watercolor paper with Versifine ink, let it dry well and then water colored with SU reinkers. I used my Distress in in Vintage Photo for the edges of the Riding Hood Red and Cosmo cricket dp. The dotted paper is from Bo Bunny. I love to pull in the colors by layering with my Nestabilities and that's what you see here!
Water coloring was certainly my first love (before copics) and I used to use it a lot on cards. It felt really good to go back to it for this image.
Good to have you visit today!
