Chicken Soup - yum!

You know how there are times when your far-away friend is under the weather and all you really want to do is be there to take her soup? Well, with this fun Lockhart image, now you can! ;)

I colored this chicken soup image to match these fun papers from the new Lush collection from My Minds Eye. I thought all the circles were fun, and I was really drawn to this deep dark red - it felt really warm to me, just what you need when you're sick! There are so many fantastic details on this image from the spoon to the crackers to all the little noodles in the soup. It's a fun image to color (I used Copics here) and there are some great opportunites to practice your more subtle techniques (shading between the bowl and plate, on the spoon, and coloring the steam!).

To finish off this warm card, I added a felt trim (and before you ask, it's not a PTI felt, it's just one that I had on hand that matched!) cut from PTI's rick rack die. (The sentiment is PTI, too.)

I am so glad to have this Lockhart image in my stamping arsenal - there have been so many times that I've said to friends "I wish I was there to bring you soup!" - and now, I can! ;)

Have a fantastic day! Be well.
