Happy Chickens!

Hello there!

This is my first post with a new to me stamp company Simply Stamps. They have an assortment of craft stamps and they also make a huge variety of address stamps and custom stamps.

Today I’ll be working with the Made With Chicken stamp (which is in the food packaging stamps section which I thought was funny because my chickens are anything but food) and a Custom One Line stamp that I had made with the phrase. Ever had a phrase that you can’t find? You can have it made… fun stuff!

I started by making a simple watercolor wash background with ink on watercolor paper. I used the same 4 colors of ink as I will use for stamping my chickens.

Once dry, I sponged the edges of the watercolored panel with brown ink and then attached it to my card base. I stamped the Custom One Line stamp (Happy Everything) in black ink.

Next I stamped my chickens with Made With Chicken .

I used a circle punch to cut out the chickens.

I arranged the chickens on my card with foam dots for a little dimension.
