Crafter's Companion 'Inspirers' Design Team - Chick, Chick, Chicken

Hi there

I have another fabulous Crafter's Companion Design Team project to share with you. This time it's a stamped project using a cute image from Sheena Douglass aptly called 'Chick, Chick, Chicken and the brand new Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens.

When I chose this stamp to work on I'd already decided I wanted it in with shades of aqua and yellow as I wanted a fresh look to it. It's such a cute stamp, and perfect for Easter or anyone who lives on a farm...or maybe keeps chickens. Thanks for looking😃

Here's What I Did
I cut down a white card blank to create a 5½" x 7"card blank. Next I printed off a pretty blue patterned paper from the Crafter's Inspiration CD-Rom #11 and attached it to the card front.

The image was stamped onto a square piece of Neenah card and then onto a post-it note which I cut out to create a mask. Using distressing ink and a cloud template cut from thin card I coloured in the clouds. The images was coloured with Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens and a sentiment was stamped in the top right corner. When the image was completed I cut inverted rounded corners and mounted it onto complimentary card and attached it to the card front using foam tape.

The flower was created using flower layering die and then glued together, The fish tail banner was hand cut made from coloured card white card that was dry embossed using a border embossing folder. Both embellishment were glued in place onto the card front, then to finish off I added a large pearl to the flower centre.
