Chick Talk

Hello.  Welcome.  Hope you are having a fun Saturday.  I did a few things in the garden, but it's pretty chilly, so I decided to put together an ATC that I had an idea for.  For a change the picture in my brain became reality quite rapidly, once I located the chicken!!!

I spotted Art Impressions small Birdie stamp and it got me thinking about Janis' ATC with chickens challenge.

I cut an ATC from kraft using a Sizzix die and stamped it with Potting Soil archival ink and Whimsy Stamps Into The Farm background stamp.

I cut a piece of silver mirror card with the ATC die and then used Die-Versions Fence background die.  I used some real straw at the bottom of the card and stamped, embossed, coloured and fussy cut Art Impressions small Birdie stamp.  The sentiment is also Art Impressions.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
