More Chickens

.....created with Artistic Outpost Country Life stamps.

I promised to show you 2 more chickens cards...........
Both scenes are watercolored. Both have the chickens stamped, masked and then the background farm scene stamped. 

This card done with red is basically the same stamped scene as the card that I posted a few days ago.  You can see it here.  I distressed the edges and placed it on a dark red mat.  There's a narrow dark brown mat and then the textured piece for the card front.  That paper is Core'dinations paper embossed with the Wizard over a piece of burlap.....yes, I like that technique!   I sanded it to reveal the under color and added Distress Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.  I knotted each piece of twine for a touch of interest.

This 2nd card has more stamping......a little more difficult.  I again stamped and masked the chickens.  I stamped the farm scene the same as the other cards.  Then I cleaned the stamp and inked just the fence.  I didn't mount it on a block so I could curl the stamp to line it up with the already stamped fence.  I kept the stamp curled and rolled it to stamp just the fence.  I repeated that again to extend it even further.  I used a touch of watercolor to fill in any blank spaces.  It helped to have the chickens break the fence line.  Looks pretty good, huh?  I was really pleased with how well it turned out! 
I chose a horizontal layout for my card with the bigger farm scene.  The dark edge was stamped with the seed packet stamp from Bloom and Grow. I inked just the very edges to frame my scene.
That's all the chickens for awhile!

I'm really busy........overwhelmed more like it!.......with working on my June projects for Spellbinders plus CHA projects.  Remember the Spellbinders Blog Frenzy is coming up in July!  I always look forward to that!!!  Makes me  nervous thinking about it......only because I have a deadline soon approaching.

Thanks for visiting! 
Happy Creating!
