The chicken lays an egg

I was going to work with my new Thomas Kinkade stamps but got sidetracked and ended up making a birthday card with this ART IMPRESSIONS stamp and sentiment. This chicken and sentiment stamp are a couple that I resently purchased with my winnings from last month's Art Impressions contest. The chicken wire stamp is by Darcie's and I embossed the wire with Stampendous Stamp-n-stuff silver detail embossing powder. The image is colored with prisma color pencils. Then I added some raffia, a feather (see her sitting on it?) and a few silver brads for the coup hardware.

The inside sentiment and response to this birthday card joke is, "...they're both a pain in the rear! Happy Birthday anyway!"

This was fun. Probably a little too much in a small space though. I have a lot of layout ideas and sentiment ideas for this chicken so you'll probably see her again.


  1. Love that chicken stamp. It could say so many things...!

  2. I am so happy you have a blog, Jennifer! I adore this chickie. The embossed wire with the feather and raffia really make this one a standout. I love the little extra touches.

  3. Cool Card jennifer! I love the silver embossed chicken wire. It really pops! And that chicken is too funny. Colors are perfect! Another winner!!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them.
