When I had the Critters on the Farm set out for my last card, the idea for the card popped in my head. I knew I did not want to fussy cut all of those chicks out, so I created a strip of them with only a little fussy cutting around the hen.
Size: Horizontal top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started by making my row of chick on a strip of water color paper. I added some detail to the hen with a thin black marker. I used Distress Inks to add color to my images. I did a lot of color laying to achieve colors I didn’t have.
While the chicks were drying, I created my grass. I die cut a larger strip with the Grassy Border die and ink blended some Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn Distress inks on it. I also stamped the sentiment on the bottom right edge.
My white card base was looking a little plain, so I added some grey dots using Simon Says Stamp Smoke ink. Finally, I adhered the two strips together and then to the card base.
