Delft Blue Easter Chick Tile Cookies

My neighbor, Marcia, collects Delft blue porcelain—she still has the Delft blue porcelain cookies I made for her a year ago! I found some gorgeous blue and yellow kitchen towels and decided to make cookies to complement them, and to give them to her for Easter. This time, I told her she'd better just take a photo and eat the cookies!

I licensed a clip art border and colored it blue. Next, I found three early 1900s Easter postcards with cute yellow chicks on them, isolated them in Photoshop, and put them in the blue frames. I love how they turned out. So did my 2-year-old son, who managed to take a bite out of one before I got the photos taken. Needless to say, Marcia only got 8 cookies, instead of my intended 9 :D

The wafer papers are available at my shop.
