Spring Chicken!

This card was very quick and easy to make... As I think I've mentioned before, I bought the French version of the Spring Fling set (Vive Le Printemps) - hence the sentiment on the card. The French (and German) versions of all stamp sets are available for purchase via the UK catalogue. I was trying to find something simple to make really quickly, as I've lost all my energy - I've had the winter vomiting virus all week. Very unpleasant!

I inked up the entire chicken with So Saffron ink and then coloured over the ink on the legs and beak with a marker before stamping.

I've added a couple of fun elements: (1) yellow Fun Flock has been adhered to the chick's body, making him nice and fluffy!; and (2) I've added a "googly eye"...
