April 15, 2015 Chicken In


What a cute stamp and sentiment from Great Impressions - (love their stamps).  I have a friend who recently had surgery so I am sending this one to her in hopes she is doing well.  For this project I stamped and embossed with black embossing powder colored with copic markers and I can see that I need to refine this technique a bit as I had a few stray black thingies, but it worked out ok.  I will know the next time.  I used bits and pieces of some patterned papers that I had clipped together and thing it all tied together.  Had some new thin washi tape from AMuse Studio that worked great to tie the elements into Sketch Saturday.  Off in the mail it goes today.     Challenges:
     Sketch Saturday - follow sketch
     Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
     Crafty Catz - 2 or more patterned papers
     Got Moxie - spring
     Crafting from the Heart - anything goes
