This little Edwin is part of Magnolia's 2009 Easter collection, but I think he has even more potential! My very talented friend, Jacque (Jacque's Joie de Vivre), offered several suggestions for accompanying sentiments; be sure to check them out on today's KL Stampin' N Scrappin' blog post.
Several other helpful resources were used to create this card: Copic Creations has a wealth of tutorial links for coloring blue jeans and the sketch is this week's Just Magnolia challenge.
One difficulty I had making this card was trying to decide if this a hen or a rooster? At first I thought it was a rooster because of the tail plumage. Once I started coloring him/her, I wasn't so sure. We had the regular white chickens while growing up and they didn't have nearly the tail feathers this one does. Guess I'd better brush up on my chicken knowledge before I start up my own coop!
And I'll end on an appropriate quote, also provided by Jacque:
"If you were born lucky, even your rooster will lay eggs." Russian proverb
