I had a lot of fun setting up this card. Once the worst was over (fussy-cutting those chickens), the card just came together beautifully. I watercoloured the chickens using my Aqua-Painter and a mix of the following inks: Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, So Saffron, Mango Melody, Smoky Slate, Gray Granite and Poppy Parade. For my background I used a wide brush and my Balmy Blue and Crushed Curry inks.
I wanted seeds scattered across the bottom and found that the sand image from the Magical Mermaid set worked perfectly.
The foil chicken wire? Who knew I had a die for that? I plan to use this one a whole lot more!
And, of course, I had to create a fun envelope to go with the card.
