Hey, Chick Urban Chicken Wire Cards
It didn't take long for the Hey, Chick stamp set to become a favorite among the Sale-a-Bration selections.  They certainly are some crazy, cute chickens!  You can earn this stamp set for FREE when you place a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!
Hey chick chicken wire - funky chicken
Chicken Wire Background—I stamped a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Sahara Sand card stock using the Hexagons Texture Impressions Folder.  That's right!  Just ink up the "wire" side of the folder with Sahara Sand ink, then place the card stock inside the folder and burnish it with your hands. What a clever and perfect background for this funky chicken!
Background Basics—I adhered the chicken wire layer onto a Basic Gray card base.  Next, I added a 2" x 5-1/4" strip of patterned paper from the Urban Underground Specialty DSP.  I also adhered a 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of another Urban Underground pattern to a 3" square of Basic Gray.  I dressed it up with some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine (retired from the Holiday Catalog) and adhered it to the card front.
Hey chick chicken wire - funky chicken 2
Funky Focal Point—I stamped the Hey, Chick chicken to Very Vanilla card stock with Archival Black Ink, then colored him in with an Aqua Painter and ink pads.  I used Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango, Sahara Sand and Smoky Slate colors.  I die cut the colored image with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layered it onto a Cherry Cobbler scallop circle made with the Layering Circles Framelits.  It's popped up with Dimensionals.
Hey chick chicken wire - funky chicken 3
Sweet Sentiment—I love the "chicken scratch" style of the font in this stamp set!  I stamped the greeting on a 1-3/4" x 1/2" strip of Very Vanilla, then fishtailed the ends with super-sharp Paper Snips.  It's also popped with Dimensionals.
