Chicken Scratch Friendship Card

Chicken Scratch Friendship Card

Hello and welcome! It’s Karen here today and I have a friendship card to share with you. I think we are all in need of more personal connections these days and sometimes a hand made card can bring a lot of joy to those we love.  I’ve used the Chicken Scratch stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs for this one because those chickens have definitely got some attitude! 


I used copic markers to colour in my images.  I added some greys and browns to the pig to make it look like he was playing in the mud.  The copic markers I used are listed down below.

For the background, I masked off the sky and ink blended the ground with a mix of Distress Ink in Tea Dye and Vintage Photo.  I used a copic marker to add brown spots in a random pattern, and also to make a mud puddle for the pig to play in.  Then I masked off the ground before ink blending the sky.  I used the Cloud Edger stencil from A Colorful Life and Clear Day ink from Cosmic Shimmer for the sky.  The fence and grassy borders were cut from Lawn Fawn dies.  The barn was embossed with the Honey Bee Barnwood Planks dies before ink blending it and assembling it. 

Before adding the animals to the scene, I stamped and clear heat embossed the sentiment which is from the Chicken Scratch stamp set and is just perfect for a friendship card, especially these days.   I think those little animals would lift anyone’s spirits! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day!
