I know Sale-a-bration is over this year, but I had to play again with my favorite chicken stamp. This guy just makes me giggle, and that is why I create things like this, to make me and others smile. I do hope you got yourself this stamp set while it was available though. I usually end up purging a bit after the sale is over since those products aren’t available anymore, but this Hey Chick set is a keeper. That is why I got it in a wood mount set.
This combination might look familiar since I just did a card with this kit making a floral thank you project. This is the sixth of seven projects re-using left over workshop kits making them into something totally different. Mission accomplished here once again.
The background was stamped with the Hardwood stamp in smokey slate and sponged heavily. That is such a classic stamp. I am sure it will be around for a long time. The chicken was stamped in the upper center of the card front as to leave room for the ribbon and sentiment below. Water color pencils came in handy for a quick color job and touched up with an aqua pen to blend the colors in.
Instead of a bow like the last card, I wrapped it twice around and gave it a little know. It looks great! To keep with the sponged look of the wood background I sponged the card front equally well. That also helped to draw additional focus to that awesome chicken, as if he needed help.
The inside got a little stamp from the same set and a second sentiment. The cute egg got the same coloring treatment and a touch of sponging around the edges of the paper. It was a fairly quick project, always faster when the papers are all ready to go.
Have a creative day!
