Chicken Wings!


Happy September, everyone!  Hope you're having a great week so far!  My card today is for three challenges:  Stamp Ink Paper's Wonderful Wings; Freshly Made Sketches' sketch; and Retro Rubber's Critter Time:
SIP Challenge 63RRCB 46

Now, don't laugh, but chickens DO have wings, so my critter is a chicken, from a set called Countryside, which is from 2010.  I pulled out some scraps from my bin, punched some circles, did a wee bit of stamping, and this is what I ended up with:


I always wanted a chicken wire stamp, but I never did get one! I did remember that I had a Crafty Secrets digital image, so I printed it out on some Naturals White cardstock;  the chicken is stamped in Cherry Cobbler, and each circle is sponged with a little Sahara Sand ink to give it a vintage look:


I stamped a "hello" (Papertrey's What the Doodle Feather) in Delightful Dijon, added some thick baker's twine and my country creation was done!

Pix from the last hurrah of summer at Dutch Wonderland:


Have a blessed day and thank you for visiting!

LOL yes chickens do have wings! A dinner debate the other night was if they can fly, and after a google search it turns out they can, they are just not very good at it. Did you know they could swim too? Thanks for sharing your beautifully country card with SIP, and have a great day!

Wonderful CAS card with just the right finishing details. Yes chickens do have wings and sometimes they spread them out, we have about a dozen in our barn/yard as they free range! Thank you for joining us at Retro Rubber this fortnight!

Once again Leanne, just a wonderful card. Fabulous combination of the challenges and I really admire the way you make vintage look both simple and clean. Love that cherry cobbler chicken on his text background - definitely a critter!

Oh my gosh, Leanne! This card is so fabulous. I really wanted to use circles on my card but couldn't get it to work for me. You've made it look easy and have done it expertly! Love your choices of scrap papers, image and the perfect chicken wire printed paper. Just awesome, Leanne! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
