Carolers

I have a Christmas card to share today...featuring some Penny Black chickens. The stamp is called 'Carolers', and I coloured it using watercolour pencils. I added a sentiment (from a Lili of the Valley set), distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I stamped my Hero Arts 'Music Collage' stamp directly on to a kraft card blank using Versafine 'Smoky Gray' ink.

Helen, this is so fun! I happen to have a fondness for chickens, not sure why, perhaps because of cuties like this. Love your background, so perfect for your lovely card. Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon this week!
