Holy Cluck!

This image & sentiment can be found here.
Ok- this made me giggle!
The image is by Bugaboo Stamps and is actually only the three chickens across one row... but I made four copies of the image and "stacked" them for more of a visual impact.  Details of the process can be found below.

This card is my DT card for 613 Ave C's latest challenge - ATG.  You can find some fabulously creative work from the Design Team and details of the challenge at the above link.  The Sponsor's are Bugaboo Stamps & Di's Digi Stamps, each of whom is providing a prize for this challenge.


  • Bugaboo Stamps provided "Chickz - Holy Cluck" for me to use for this challenge. The image includes the sentiment.
  • The pennant is a rubber stamp from Hero Arts.
  • For the focal images I used Paper Tole Technique to give them dimension. Printed 4 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut with a narrow white border and 'paper sculpted' each by dry embossing from the back.  The layers were stacked as if the Chickz were on bleachers with the bottom edge glued & the top of each image elevated with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.  You can see that in this photo:

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • The papers on the cover and in the interior are both from The Paper Studio's 'Back to Basics' collection.  
  • White Gel pen
  • White 'topping' on the ice cream is ???
  • Pink & red heart confetti from stash & applied with a dot of  Glossy Accents.
  • Candi was painted green with Copics and used to anchor the ends of the sentiment tag.  The center of the tag was elevated on foam tape to provide the curvature.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
