Spotted chicks for The Spotted Chick

I came upon an image from Hambo Stamps I had printed out some time ago and, as it sometimes happens, I suddenly knew exactly what card I was going to make!

Recently I have discovered a fabulous blog by Jeanie a.k.a. The Spotted Chick. Her cards are funny and amazingly beautiful and occasionally she is runs a little challenge called Now That's Krafty! All you have to do is to use kraft card on your project somewhere.


So I decided to present The Spotted Chick with some spotted chicks! lol

I used 2 Sketches 4 You sketch again, just because I liked it a lot and thought it would work beautifully with my idea. I still think it does! :)

The image from Hambo was colored with Copics and then hand sewn to the background panel. The scallops were punched with MS border punch. Then I just added some more hand sewing to the bigger panel, wrapped some lace and bakers twine from my stash below the image and added a cute button with a twine bow on top of Nesties tag.


All the papers were sponged with Tea Dye distress ink, just to give some added depth. The papers are from October Afternoon Fly A Kite collection.

I would also like to enter the following challenges:
Digital Tuesdays - Make Me Laugh

Pixie Dust Studio - use Kraft in your project

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Buttons

The Pink Elephant - The color yellow, designer paper and buttons (I just used one but I hope it qualifies!)

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Hugs
Annika

This is fantastic! Chickens never looked so cute! Thanks for playing an long with the Pixie Dust Studios challenge of Kraft! Beth

Mina said...

p.s. I use a saucer to cut my circular cards (very technical)...just make sure you overlap the side and bottom, you need a flat base and to keep an opening...hope that helps
