Today I bring you a card that was made for a challenge over at Global Design Project. The theme of this week’s challenge is a color challenge, make a card that features a certain set of colors. On my to-do list are a number of things, one of which is to make a card with a new stamp set called Hey, Chick. When I showed this stamp set to my oldest son, he said “that’s a chicken! What is that chicken doing!”. Not being able to give him a practical answer, I grabbed something logical. I told him these chickens are looking at him! After he laughed and left the room, I imagined these cluckers were actually looking out at us from frames hanging on a wall. Thus, this card idea became a new project.

For this card, I knew what stamp set and colors I needed to use. I had a design in mind as well. To make the frames, I chose to use the Stitched Shapes Framelits. They let me get the stitched look and cut nice straight lines all at one time. For texture, I used an embossing folder to give the look of shadows and light. My card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, standard US card base, made of Early Espresso and feature layers of white on white and frames with the same color combo.
I stamped the images with Early Espresso ink. The images were painted with Crumb Cake and Real Red, which gave highlights and low lights. I especially like the white areas and tone on tone effect. No sequins today, just a few rhinestones to create and compliment the visual triangle.

When I asked my loving husband if he liked this card project, he took a few minutes to answer me. He replied that these were chickens, to which I confirmed his answer. Taking another few seconds to look and think, he said he thought it was cool and smiled. BINGO! That was what I was after, that smile you get when receiving a card. I’m thinking now of photobombing cicken cards!
