Happy 1st Birthday LIM

For  LIM first Anniversary Chrissie and Mandi are back to a repeat of their inaugural challenge which for the first Saturday of the month is colour... and this time they have chosen 
AQUA
here's my entry
The images are from LOCAL KING RUBBER in Canada I first saw the little chick on a card by the lovely and uba talented Gay Peplow of  Crafty Musings
 I love all the images in this set so had to buy it! thank you for the link Gay. It arrived very quickly and the postage was reasonable ... I'll be back :)
I stamped the square with ColorBox, aqua then over stamped the flower image first in an old  jet black Stazon and then with fingers crossed went over  it with Versa Color, Turquoise... whew! it achieved  the effect I wanted... to help the flower pop a bit. I then did the same with the little chick... there are two sizes of chick in the set.

The sentiment is a slightly darker than I wanted ...but I doubted being able to achieve the line up again so left as is ... ;)
 Take care

Such a pretty card. The stamp is really interesting...perhaps I will look them up:)
I really like stamps which are not too finely cut, they go well with watercolour paints.
