INKY Challenge Wednesday

First of all...Did you notice my new BANNER?!!! *huge grin* I've been wanting to do a farm theme for a while now-- just because it says a little more about me (I'll explain more on that later) and I finally finished it last night.I'm sure you recognize this little girl up there -- that's LiLi from Inky Impressions! Which brings me to today's "INKY Wednesday Challenge." We were asked to create something 3D, so I decided to make this cute little Gable Box and make a farm themed set with LiLi -- she's so intrigued over those adorable chicks that have just hatched!
I found a picture of chicken wire online and printed it onto my Saffron cardstock for the box base. The DP on both is SU!'s Bella Rose and I printed the sentiment on my computer as well. You can click on the picture to see it up close.
I have to tell you...I'm having so much fun coloring these adorable girl stamps!! OH, and in case you're wondering---I use watercolor pencils and an aqua painter to color all my images!
Wanna see more 3D projects made with some different Inky Impressions girls?? Or did you just receive some of these gorgeous stamps and want to join in our challenge??? Then check out our challenge blog! ☺ We'd LOVE to have you visit and participate!!

Hope you get time to Ink Something today!!
