Chicken in with You

Chicken in with You

I do love a pun and this one is a fun one in the Mama Elephant Zodiac Rooster stamp set. Instead of getting my markers or pencils out to colour these plump chickens I decided to use Inktense pencils for a change.....

 

 

The chickens in the set have great poses so I chose three and stamped them onto textured card in grey waterproof ink. I'm never quite sure the best way to use inktense pencils so I started by adding a few grey pencil marks around the underside of the bodies before adding a slightly damp paintbrush. There were a few pencil marks that remained after adding water which gave a speckled kind of texture so I added more to make a few spots along the undersides of the chooks. When they had dried I cut them out using the matching dies.

 

 

I used the inktense pencils with a very light touch to make a swish of earth and sky, with a few added spots to make stones and pebbles. I'm sure you can think of other fun sentiments but this one in the set is a great for lots of occasions.

Thanks for stopping by, catch you next week :)
