Newton's Nook Designs June Release- Chicken Scratches


Good Morning!  It's release day for Newton's Nook Designs!  Their June release is so fun!!  Today we are sharing cards made with the new Chicken Scratches stamp set:


Chicken Scratches is all about chickens!  I had fun with this one!  I started by stamping my card front.  I chose a rainbow of colors from my Stampin' Up! inks and used them to stamp the chicken wire stamp over and over again until the space was filled.  Next, I added a panel of the sunrays patterned paper from the Hello Sunshine 6x6 pad by Lawn Fawn and sewed around the edges.  I added the doily and sewed the edge of that, too.
I stamped the chickens over the doily and on patterned papers with black ink.  I fussy cut around the patterned papers and pieced them over the images on the doily.  I added a bit of shading with my Copic markers and also added some chicken feed to the area around their feet.  Aren't they cute?  :)  I added my sentiment last.


This set is so fun!  Even if you're not a chicken person (I'm not! Hee!) this one might just grow on you!  I love the way they look paper pieced...  Chicken Scratches will be available for purchase on June 20th.
