Fabulous chicks!

     Some of you may recall that I am a chicken fanatic.  My kitchen is covered in cluckers so when I saw this new set from Art Impressions called Spring Chicken, I was super excited.
     For this card I stamped the image and colored with my Gansai Tambi watercolors.  Next I cut the image out with an oval die.  I added some doodling around the edge for some "chicken scratch" and popped the frame up on some foam.  I adhered the image oval straight to the card base.

     Hope my cluckers gave you a chuckle today.
     Have a blessed weekend!

  1. Beautiful water-colouring of this fabulous image Tracy. Thanks for visiting my blog while I was away.

  2. Your water coloring is beautiful on this and I am not familiar with that type of watercolors so I have to do a search. They look like it would be rich in color. The scratch marks around your card are priceless - big smile!!!!

  3. Oh my....look at these chicks. They're ready for a day of celebrating. Great water coloring and I love your "chicken scratch" border! Hugs, Geri

  4. Hee hee ... there's as plump as this old bird! Love it Tracy!

  5. Your chicks are fabulous! Pretty watercoloring and love the addition of the "chicken scratch" doodle frame. I'm still smiling!

  6. I do love this stamp set! So fun!

  7. This is such a fun card and I wouldn't mind being the 'chick' who got a gorgeous card like this.
