A Chicken in the Bath

     Another Friday and another DT card for the challenge at QKR Stampede.  I'm just so crazy about their images and it tickles me to be on the DT.  Our theme this week is "Bath Time" and I don't want you to be confused by my choice of image.

     I did everything possible to get this little chicken (rooster?) to add some warm water and suds to the 'bath' but ran into an obstinate refusal.  As you can see from the outside and inside sentiments, it simply wasn't going to happen!  Whichever he or she may be, s/he's certainly not a DUCK!  :-D

I based the outside design on the sketch from The Outlawz.

     The image is called  "Resting", Digi 24122 and the sentiments are mine.  I colored the whole thing with ProMarkers, cut it with a die from QuicKutz, and matted it with another larger die cut from the same set.  The two different ribbons for the wraps and the bows were in my stash and the flowers are punched and embossed by hand.  Pretty simple overall.

     Remember, while you do have to follow the theme, you are not required to use an image from QKR Stampede.  However, if you do, your entry will be placed into a separate drawing and that really increases your chances of winning.  All other entries are placed into a drawing and there are always more people in that group so your chance of winning three more QKR digis of your choice are reduced accordingly.  I hope we're going to see you playing along and doing something with the "Bath Time" theme.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
