Ok…I’m done telling you how much I like this stamp set. What do you think about the “chicken wire”? I certainly didn’t come up with the idea to use the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder as chicken wire but it certainly works! I love finding the clever ways other people have used products. I don’t manage to come up with any of these clever ideas myself but I’m happy to share other people’s creativity.
To make my chicken wire pop on the card I used a sponge brayer and the Crumb Cake ink on it after I embossed it. Worked like a charm to highlight the raised portions of embossed card stock.
I used the Real Red and Pumpkin Pie markers to color in a few areas of my chicken and basically left the rest of it plain. I did add just a bit of Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake ink to the body with an Aqua Painter just to add a bit of dimension. I also added a little Crumb Cake ink by the chicken’s feet to “ground” it so it wasn’t floating in the air. 🙂
Speaking of GROUND….It’s Groundhog Day! Unfortunately Punxsutawney Phil predicted 6 more weeks of Winter. Does that make you happy or sad? We haven’t had much of a winter here in Denver but the mountains in Colorado have been slammed with snow. What type of winter have you been having where you live?
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
