Do the Funky Chicken
If you're a baby boomer like me, you may remember a dance called the Funky Chicken. I used to do the funky chicken with my Uncle Paul when we got a little lit. Now that I think about it, it seems a little weird but it was funny at the time. Us dancing around like a couple of whacked out chickens. Anyhow, back in January I got this stamp at the stamp expo in Riverside. I think it's a Prickley Pear stamp. I bought it because it looked cool enough to color. I colored it once on white cardstock and decided that it was too stark, so I used the beige ground from an artists palette. This was a fun image to color with my Prismas. Heck, anything is fun to color with Prismas. After I finish my samples for Johanna for the Del Mar stamp expo, I'll be dragging out my Terry Medaris stamps and coloring them because I haven't yet colored all my Medaris stamps. I think John and I are going to go to Peoria next month for a Padres spring training game, and plan on heading into Phoenix and Mesa to hit a couple of rubber stamp stores. I'd like to get some Medaris stamps and some stamps by Copper Leaf Creations. They have some really neat stamps. I notice my taste in stamps goes in phases and different types. Right now I'm into the southwestern rubber stamps. I can't get enough of them. Sorry ladies, Bellas will never make it into the rotation.
