Hey, Chick

This is one of the best times of year for a paper crafter.  Stampin Up’s annual Sale-a-Bration (SAB) from now to March 31.  For every order of $50 or more, you select a free item from the SAB brochure, and let me tell you, there are some adorable ones this year.

Hey Chick is one of my favorites and so fun to color the chickens in a variety of ways.  I saw this card on Pinterest and thought the use of the Hexagon embossing folder was genius making it look like chicken wire by using a brayer to add  ink on the raised side of the folder before running it through the big shot. I totally copied her card and here is the link  to her original.

I used the new watercolor pencils to color my hen.  I used them dry first, adding in my shading and various colors, then used an aqua painter to wet and blend the colors.

The Stitched shapes are due to be available for ordering again on Jan 16 after their brief yet very popular appearance in November.  I love that stitched detail is just enough to add for layering or emphasizing an image without detracting from it.

Would you like this stamp set for free also.  Here is a $50 order that could get that for you.  My store is always open for orders with delivery right to your home.  Just click Shop on the menu bar above click any of the pictures below or click….
