Feeding the Chickens

Todays card was created using the Pink Gem Stamp called Milly with Chickens. Ive stamped this onto white card and coloured it with my Karisma Colouring Pencils these are the original Prisma pencils and work exactly the same way as they do.

Ive cut the base card from a folded A3 piece of white card to the size of 8"x8" and mounted on this a piece of green glittered card for the first layer, on top of this is a pale green embossed card, after which I have used another colour of the glittered card for third layer. Ive then used a plain piece of pearlescent green card but put it through my cuttlebug first and used the small dot folder. Ive then used another piece of the embossed card in a yellow colour with the same pattern as the pale green one. All this card except the pearlescent one is by Michelle Marsden of HotBed Creations.

I cut the stamped image out with my Rectangle wizard die, then a Scalloped one to mount it on with a piece of the green pearlescent card. Ive also stamped a greeting onto a piece of white card and cut this out the same way as the stamped image and mounted this also onto the green pearlescent card.

The card was finished of with some flowers, these are the papermania flowers layered and with a brad put through the centre. The last thing Ive done is stuck two cat buttons at the bottom, and three small pearls at the top.
