Create a fun, whimsical chicken family with the variety of images in the Hey Chick Stamp Set. Pair the images with great greetings about friendship and you've got the makings for wonderful projects for family and friends. Add color to the line-art images using your favorite coloring technique -- I used my favorite Stampin' Blends (alcohol markers).
