Skipping Stones Sketch 015

It's Tuesday!  That means another GREAT sketch from Jami Bova. I'm loving her sketches, very simple yet they make me think. Here is the sketch for this week:


I'm not even sure how I altered this weeks sketch...flipped it on it's side and then I think I mirrored it. Anyway, you see the similarities. Here is my take on the sketch:
I started with some paper from Carolee's Creations, both the patterned paper and the blue cardstock is from Carolee's. The green cardstock is more of that pearl stuff from Walmart that I hoard.
From there I used some of the Heidi Swap stuff I used last week to paper piece the chick, which by the way, is the new set of stamps from Skipping Stones Design. I cut the chicks out, added a little orange stickles to their legs and beaks and then pop dotted everything.  I even stamped some grass from that set, cut it out and pop dotted it as well. 
I distressed the edges of everything (though some places are hard to see it) and finished it off with a Petaloo flower. The gem that was on it didn't match so I changed those out to one that did. I am loving the paper pieced look and might have to try more of it. Thanks for looking and have a great week!
