Day 1 of 2 Red Bananas Sneak Peeks

Today is Sneak Peek Day 1 of the new and exclusive 2 Red Bananas Stamp sets!

The Week of Peeks will go through Sunday and then all the new stamp sets will be available to purchase on the website Monday, April 13th. Today I'm showing off the Cajun Chicken. This is a fun Mardi Gras chicken that comes with several sayings. For my card, I used the image only. The image was stamped with Tsukineko graphite black ink and colored with water color pencils and mineral spirits. I used a green glaze pen to color the mask and then a red stardust pen for some of the beads and feathers. If you don't have all the stardust colors you want to use, simply color the image and then go over it with the clear stardust pen. That's how I got the other feathers and beads to look like I used a stardust pen.

Be sure to visit the other design team blogs to see what they have posted for today and keep coming back to see what new stamps will be featured this week!
