Banana Split Sunday Challenge and Hawaiian Chicken

It's time for another Banana Split Sunday Challenge!

The theme of the this week's challenge is "wearing stripes". So I used striped paper with the 2 Red Bananas Hawaiian Chicken Stamp Set. The image was stamped, heat embossed and paper pieced together. The hibiscus shirt is part of the stamp so that was colored in using Stampin' Up markers. This is a really cute set with more phrases in the set. All of the chicken sets look cute paper pieced. You can see the full line of the chicken stamps in the April releases on the 2 Red Bananas site here.

Paper(s): BasicGrey citrus & butter pecan, Kelly Panacci patterned papers
Stamp(s): 2 Red Bananas Hawaiian Chicken
Ink(s): VersaMark with black embossing powder, Tsukineko graphite black, Stampin' Up markers
Other: Prima flower

To join us in the challenge this week, simply submit your project(s) to Mr. Linky on the 2 Red Bananas Blog. This week there will be a prize given to one random participant!

On a sad note, this will be my last official 2 Red Bananas design team post. I've gone back to work which has taken a lot of my free, creative time away so I've stepped down from the design team. However, Deb Felts has accepted a permanent design team position with 2 Red Bananas. You can check out her blog and creative work here. Congrats, Deb!
