Destination Chicago

Happy Thursday! Thought I’d pop in quick with the finished card I started for The Daily Marker 30 Day challenge! πŸ™‚

This is a great woodblock stamp of Chicago by Hero Arts. πŸ™‚ It is called Destination Chicago.

I used Distress Inks for these colors. I think I’m trying to combat the winter blues with rainbows lately πŸ˜‰ . I like the way it turned out in the end. And as I’ve said many a times, you just NEVER know with watercolors! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!

Greeting from Chicago!

I have been super excited to get this Hero Arts stamp set since I first saw it. πŸ™‚ Then, Ellen Hutson had a sale, it was in stock, and bam! It landed in my mailbox. Funny how that works, right? πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_chicago_wmThis little set is awesome and also delightful because: Wrigley! More to come with it for sure. Fun stuff by Kelly Purkey/Hero Arts!! πŸ™‚Β  I did make another card already, and then proceeded to smear ink on it. Ugh! #toolateatnight … So, I need to remake that one another day. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_chicago_00_wmThought it would be fun to use the Chicago flag as inspiration. The hearts I used are from THIS die set, All Inside, by Julie Ebersole/Ellen Hutson. The stitched border die is the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX from My Favorite Things. Definitely wear this STAX out! πŸ™‚

That’s all from Chicagoland today! Looking forward to more fun from this set! πŸ™‚
