Cluck Cluck!!

I spent a bit of time in my craft room stamping yesterday... just a little bit but it was enough to make another birthday card using this super cute chicken stamp!

I went with a bright and cheery color scheme and paired the paper with some fun buttons, embossing and ribbon. Lots and lots of texture for this card! The chicken was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Copic markers. I added sponging to all of the layers and a bit of paper piercing.

And a closeup of the cake... I colored with Copics and then applied a layer of Ranger Crackle Accents and let dry. The picture doesn't do it justice... too much glare. I really need to work on my picture taking setup - I do believe I need a second light source... especially since I usually take my pictures at night time. Not that you can tell that from when I post my projects, right? Nothing like midnight bloggin! ;)
