The Cat's Pajamas color inspiration

I don't know what I enjoy better, a great sketch challenge or a color inspiration challenge! I found this cute inspiration piece at The Cat's Pajamas this week and since I love challenges, I knew I needed to give it a try. Plus I could pull out some brand new TCP's stamps!
I followed the color part of this challenge since I really didn't have stamps that were back to school themed. I found this piece of Cosmo Cricket paper in my stash and it was such a perfect fit, I knew I had to create!
This chicken sitting in the soup bowl is just too much and wouldn't it be the kind of creation that would bring a smile to the face of someone who wasn't feeling well?
I colored the chicken and the bowl with my copic markers and then I tried to get the sun to shine on the bowl a bit so you can see that I gave the bowl a coat of Aleene's Paper Glaze. This gives a great epoxy look so it looks just like a shiny bowl you would pull out of your cupboard.
I wanted to share a photo of the three silly boys that were at my house today. They were asking for me to take pics of them but it is funny how the silly faces always have to be part of that!!! They were actually pretty tame in this photo, it can be sillier!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
