Chicken Gift Tags

I have a couple of simple little gift tags to share today...featuring Penny Black chicken stamps. The first one is for a birthday gift...and uses the stamp 'Present Pile'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut him out. I added a sentiment (from the 'Birthday Critters' set by Paper Smooches' and a few strips of washi tape to a plain kraft tag, then added my chicken on top using 3D foam pads.


My second tag is for a Father's Day gift...and features a chicken from the '12 Days of Christmas' set...he's the 'French Hen'. Again, I coloured him using watercolour penils, and cut him out. This time I stamped a 'Chicken Wire' background stamp (by Darkroom Door) on to my tag using Versamark Ink, and heat embossing it using silver embossing powder. I added some sentiments (from the 'Sentiments' set by Hero Arts, and 'Laugh Out Loud Again' set by Clearly Besotted) and the chicken over the top on 3D foam pads.
