Gingersnap Creations GC126: Spicy Supply Challenge-Raffia
The month of November was Down on the Farm at Gingersnap Creations. I was looking for some chicken wire paper, but never came up with any. I found an old vegetable bag in my stash, but it was red, it kind of looked like chicken wire. Nope, I didn't make it to the local hardware supply. So I thought I would lay the veggie bag on the paper and use it as a stensil. When I started dabbing the green ink pad on it came out like you see, no chicken wire effect, but I kind of liked what I was getting so I decided to go for sky and grass.
I cut the nest out by hand and stamped it with my wood grain background stamp and sponged the edges.
I have to give credit to Susan of Cat's Ink*Corporated, she made a card 8-31-10 with a felt chicken made with punches. That is where I got the idea to make this Speckled Hen with part of an Oval, the tip of a star, and 3 different hearts. I glued a tiny black bead for the eye, went around it with a fine black marker, and dabbed the hole with my white gel pen. Thanks Susan--my chick is a little different than yours, but your idea is fantastic.
And Thanks Gingersnappers for all you fun challenges.
Thanks for visiting and viewing,
