Happy birdday chick

Today, I finally found some time to play along with Tuesday Morning Sketches again, which was long overdue.

I used a digital image, Birdbath chick by From the Heart Stamps. They have such cute images, so be prepared to see a few more on my cards. I printed the image on Neenah Solar white cardstock and coloured it with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I could not resist using my Wink of Stella glitter brush to add some glamour to the bath bubbles and the bird's eyelids. I used a few Kaisercraft pearls (coloured with one of the Flexmarkers) on top of 3 of the bath bubbles. The sentiment is from the It's only words 1 set by Ladybug Crafts Ink, which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo black. The papers are from the Cubierta Miniatura paper pad by Cosmo Cricket. The lace is Marianne Design.

And here's the sketch I used:
