Another Chicken Card!


I have really been on a roll with these chicken images! This one is from Hambo stamps! I love their images because they are so silly and fun! I stamped this cutie pie on glossy white cardstock using my SU! ink. I am still having an issue with some smearing while coloring with my Copics. I ordered the Palette noir but it is on backorder! I had this magic mesh, also from SU! (which I heard they might not carry anymore!) I had this brilliant idea that I would use my circle punch to cut the MAgic Mesh....big mistake! It broke my punch! It is sticking and I had to use a hammer to unstick it! Now it is not working! Another one of my brilliant plans gone wrong! Anyway, back to the card, I decided to sew with embroidery floss.....yes I know, I AM pretty domestic aren't I? I did the blanket stitch! I attached the meshed, sewn circle to a distressed scalloped circle. The solid card stock is by Bazzill, the lined paper is Creative Imaginations, and the animal paper is Karen Foster. I used jewelry tags to stamp, "Hi Chick." with Karen Foster's snap stamps. I had some quilting fabric which I cut and used for ribbon.


Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! I'll be back on Monday....lots of family stuff happening! Happy Father's Day too!!
