From One Groovy Chick to Another

Hey everybody! The days are passing by so fast it’s making my head spin! It’s so bizarre that nearly half the year is gone already! I have another fun card to share with you that I created for the Prickley Pear Stamps new release! This card features the new Hippie Chickens stamp set along with a tie dyed stenciled background, and was so much fun to create!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding landscape card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Tangy Orange cardstock and 80# Solar White cardstock. Using The Crafter’s Workshop Mini Tie Dyed Stencil and several blending brushes, I applied Ranger mustard seed, twisted citron, cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, salty ocean, seedless preserves and picked raspberry distress inks. I then slid the stencil very very slightly over toward the right and downward, applied DreamWeaver Translucent Embossing Paste and allowed it to dry. I trimmed the panel and adhered it to the orange panel and then to the card base.

I stamped the van and a couple chickens in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and fussy cut them all. Then came the fun of arranging them on the background. The van needed to be ‘grounded’ so I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it beneath the tires of the van, adding one of the chickens. The finishing touch was adhering a few pieces of Clear Scraps flower confetti.

And one more look… such a fun stamp set that’s so fun to color in funky 70s colors! Yep, right up my alley!
