Today is one of my sister's birthday.
Happy Birthday Brenda!!
Brenda is crazy in love with chickens. She has those fancy ones with tuffs of feathers off the head...ones that lay eggs bluer than a robin...ones in many colors. When I saw this set of stamps from Stampin Up called Hey Chick ...I just had to have them to make her a birthday card! She loved it.
I learned in a Stampin Up class how to make the chicken wire. We used an embossing folder called "hexagon dynamic textured impressions folder". Before we ran it through the Big shot, we inked it carefully with black ink. It really does look like the chicken wire my sister uses around her chicken coops! I used a sponge to lightly color in the sky to give it some color.
The card was so her! lol
