Cheeky Chicks

Welcome back to my wee corner of blog-dom.

I have call for a card for a young boy this month, and I also have bought some new stamps recently, so they came together for this 

I had the background paper on hand, having made it for another card, and then discarded it....

The sentiment was stamped with versamark and then distress ink layered on the stamp, and then clear embossed. I used the same ink to sponge  all the edges, so it was the best fit.

The background paper is a slightly textured cream paper from a "child's craft pad" .  The ribbon which shows clearly here appears clear but has an iridescent gleam to it in bright light.

Mama chook and her chicks were all coloured with chalks, as was the sky.

The 'grass' is actually the torn edge of a strip of mulberry paper.

Thanks for calling by - may your day be blessed
