Hey Chick Card

Hello and Welcome!

Today is a two-fer. I was inspired by Laurie at My Favorite Things masking video and Laura Bassen on the Heat Wave online card class video to create a colorful background using a stencil. So here is how I combined these two techniques:

I rubbed Versamark ink through a Heidi Swapp stencil onto slate cardstock. Then, working very quickly, I added a rainbow of colored Zing embossing powders and heated it. The cute little chicken images are from My Favorite Things "Whole Herd" set, stamped with Hero Arts hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut. The banner is Simon Say Stamp's "Bundle of Stitched Shapes" cut from vellum. The sentiments are from Simon Say Stamp "All Boy" set (HEY) and My Favorite Things "Whole Herd" (chick). I stamped them with Versamark black and Ranger embossing powder, the machine stitched it onto the panel.
