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.
