Cuttlebug Be Inspired Wednesday!

It's that time again, Cuttlebug Challenge's "Be Inspired Wednesday"! This week our challenge was to use watercolors on our card + use the Cuttlebug. It was definitely a challenge for me because I am usually just a stamper and a crafter, not much of an artist! But I did my best! So here's my card "Hay Chick":

I adore these stamps, they are from Whipper Snapper. Anna Wight designed them (Sassy & Sweet Notes blog link is to the right). She is a big chicken fan, just like me....so I knew I had to buy them. I used a mixture of colored pencils and watercolors + blender pen on my stamps. I embossed my Colorbok cardstock with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dot's folder, and used Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut out the scalloped circles. I also used Jenni Bowlin paper, ribbon, buttons, and Martha Stewart ink & punch. I think the little chicken on the hay is adorable!
Don't forget to visit the Cuttlebug Challenge blog and look at all the beautiful creations the girls made this week!
Enjoy!
