I really got hooked on these chickens this week! I love coloring them! I made this card for Fond Memories. I'll show my other 2 cards another day.
The chickens and farm scene stamps are from Country Life by Artistic Outpost. I stamped the chickens first using Versafine Black Onyx ink. I created a mask with Eclipse tape to cover the chickens. Then I stamped the farm scene. Remove the mask and the chickens are in front of the barn!
I used watercolors for all the coloring.
I made the narrow dark brown frame with Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles LG S4-202 #5 and Classic Rectangles SM S4-130 #5. The farm scene is mounted with foam squares over a light blue mat framed with a narrow dark brown edge. The card front is Core'dinations paper sanded to reveal the lighter color. I added 3 strips of thin dark brown twine.
For the title, I simply trimmed around "country life" with my scissors. It may look rounded on the corners but actually the corners are just snipped off at an angle.
