Hey, Chick!

Hey Chick.0117I LOVE this stamp set!  I know…I keep telling you this but it’s true!  TSC!  Too Stinkin’ Cute!  I can’t get enough of these chickens!

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!
