Easter chick

Here is one if the cards I made for Easter this year - I made more of these, but they were mailed before I got to take a picture of them. I wanted to create something very flat and mailable, yet fun and interesting.
Not my original idea - seen it on Pinterest somewhere, but I had to figure out how to do it exactly :)
I started with stamping the chick from Honeycomb Happiness stamp set on Shimmery white card stock. Don't have any egg stamps, so I cut out an oval using Spellbinder die, then cut it into two "cracked" pieces. Lightly traced the egg pieces in pencil where I wanted them positioned then colored them and the chick using my mix of alcohol markers (blendabilities, copics and spectrum noir)
After it was done I use large Post It notes to mask the chick, egg and ground. Stamped the grass using Inspired by nature stamp. Then added couple extra free hand flicks with brush markers. Sponged the sky with Soft Sky and Marina Mist ink.
I tried to sponge the ground too, but couldn't get good enough coverage so I used copics to color it in. Traced the eggs with  thing journaling marker and added some cracks.
Sentiment and punched flowers are from Stampin Up.
