How bout these cute clucks? OH MY, how I LOVE these chicks!! Seriously – they are so cute and fun and fabulous to color!!
I used LOTS of dyed seam binding – I sort of wanted it to resemble a nest with some eggs, so I left the ribbon big and fluffy and added the buttons! For the background of the circle, I used the cute chicken-wire stamp that comes in Cluck Part II. I used Vintage Photo Stain – I love this stuff!. First, I quickly rubbed the stain all over the circle and let it dry. Then I used my craft mat and created some puddles of stain just by dabbing the stain onto the mat, then I gently placed the circle into the puddle – to get the nice water-drop look, don’t spread it around, just lay it right into the puddle gently then pick it straight up. You get a great “oil-stain” look or spilled coffee look. I let that dry and then stamped the great chicken-wire image! You want to make sure it is dry so you don’t get any bleeding of your image.
I did the same spilled-oil look for the inside of the card… you can see it below – SIMPLE EASY-PEASY way to get that dirty grunge look we all love!!
Hope your day is great!!
