Everyone loves a Hippy Chick!

Hi guys!! :)

This is the first time I've had the cartridge to enter in the Tacky Tuesday Challenge... I am so excited!! :)

This weeks challenge is to use the Chick from the Simply Charmed cart (Page 35), you will also need to use the word "chick" somewhere in the sentiment on your project.


I made a shaped card base using the easter egg on Doodlecharms and welded it with my Gypsy. I also added some little glasses from Everyday Paperdolls (complete with yellow tinted lenses).  I really wanted to add a peace sign, but I don't have a cartridge that has one so I had to make one up.  I used an "O" an "I" and a "V" from Simply Sweet.


grabbed the tie-dye patten from Google and printed it onto white card stock and then cut the egg card front with my E. The glasses and peace sign are cut with DCWV gold glitter paper.  The sentiment "Everyone loves a hippy chick!" was printed using Peas Bhea Script. I cut it out and matted it with some scrap tie-dye paper and added at an angle.


I attached the chick and the sentiment block to the card base with pop dots. The little flowers are mini Primas and I added the little metallic gold gems to the flower centers. Throw on some stickles and some black pen doodling and I was done! :)



Now... if you like to be a little tacky every now and then... run over to Tacky Tuesday's Facebook page and give the challenge a try!! You know you'll have as much fun as I did!! :)
