Just Chicken In

Just Chicken in - sometimes I crack myself up - wasn't that an eggcellent play on words. OK - I am sorry - I will quit my attempt at humor.
Another evening of staring at paper - I should just stamp some images and color at night. I think I might be able to handle that. I had the cutest paper - still have it - and it did not talk to me.
The weather - it is suppose to be in the 40's the next two days - doesn't that sound wonderful - well maybe not to everyone - but to us Wisconsin people - this is almost summer with 20 inches of snow still on the ground.
I stamped the chickens and couldn't figure out how to color them and then I found this patterned paper and from there - I knew how to color the chickens. This is my first card with the chickens - I have two more colored images - stay tuned - they may just hatch. Not sure I am totally satisfied with the card.
Stamp Gina K Designs
Ink Memories Artprint Brown by Stewart Superior
Watercolor Paper
Twinkling H2O's for the coloring
Bazzill Cardstock
Patterned Paper My Mind's Eye
I did some machine stitching and then I did some paper piercing - but I did it the easy way - an unthreaded sewing machine. Added a button and a brad. Of course - all the paper was inked with my favorite ink - ColorBox Chalk - Chestnut Roan. Love that ink. When ink is on sale at Hobby Lobby - I will pick up another pad if they have it in stock.
Thanks for stopping by and chickin out my blog.
