Mojo Monday - Sketch Challenge #129
CARDS Blog - make a card using any birds except owls
WT261 at Splitcoast Stampers - use new supplies (the buttermilk hen, ruffled ribbon and Cosmo Cricket papers)
I have had this Buttermilk Hen stamp from Lockhart Stamp Company for months and have been wanting to use it but just haven't gotten around to it, so when I saw the challenge on the CARDS blog to make a card using any bird other than an owl, I decided it was time! I thought it paired well with the little chick paper from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety collection. I stamped the image on an Inchie Plus square and colored it using Copic markers. The background was sponged with Versamagic Sea Breeze ink.
To make the hay she's sitting on, I cut up a length of raffia and glued the pieces to the bottom of the Inchie Plus square. I added strips of Scor Tape to the back edges of the square and then adhered the ruffled ribbon to form the mat.
For the inside, I used another corner of my scalloped black card stock and some of my patterned paper scraps.
That's about it! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
