Wicked Chickens!

When I got home from work tonight, I was excited to find three of Lin Brown's new stamp sets for Paperartsy... so, even though Liverpool are playing (and losing as I write) I had to in them up.. I started with the "wicked chickens" set.


I stamped the two chicks on white smoothy card and coloured them with Lin's Limited Edition paints, Banana, Tangerine Twist and Bougainvillea. I used the grass from the houses set, using Chartreuse Fresco to give them something to stand in, and the dotty background with Caribbean Sea, in the sky.  I stamped the two sentiments from the houses set, and cut them up and used bits of each, outlining them once I'd stuck them on the card, with black pen.  I edged the card with Caribbean Sea and fixed it to a card blank.

hope to get time to play with the rest of the stamps, tomorrow!

Thanks Lin, and Paperartsy, for some fabulous new "stuff" !!!


**EDIT.  We won. Hurrah!!

Oooo lucky you! Love those chickens - mine are hopefully winging their way up north to me as we speak! And I know you'll be happy now as I just saw Liverpool won :-)

Luv 'em Helen! This card is really going to make somebody smile big! I got mine today too but the other set of birdies & a house set ;-). Well done for being so quick off the mark with a make.

Your edit made me laugh!

Blimey but you are quick when you get new things to play with! I still need to break in the stencils I got with my Stocking swap!
