Just Chickin' on you!

Hi Everyone the challenge at The Male Room is


I have gone for something I think is quite different, for me anyway, to match with the red and blue. I chose beige!

I coloured and paper pieced the chicken in PS. I added chicken wire behind him, I did a print and cut on the Cameo of the the shaped circle and extra layers of the chicken, wings, beak, wattle and comb, adding an off cut to make them sticker like.  I did a play on words with the sentiment. I added embossing to the red paper and a little heart to the check paper. Hope you like my unusual colour combo.

The digital stamp chicken was a freebie by Heartily Farm at Cuddly Buddly 
Heart die was a freebie from a magazine
chicken wire is from Pixelscrapper
I think the paper is from Pixelscrapper 
For some reason I didn't save the file, except in my Silhouette files and that doesn't tell me who designed the papers or the circle shape.  I could kick myself. Sorry.

LOL, this is just too cute! Great idea with the chicken wire and I love his checkered overalls. I've never seen a blue rooster but I think the pop of that color is perfect for both the image and the card. :-D

This is fabulous! I'm always asking you about your skills with PS. I had to pretty much teach myself, but you go so beyond what I know. So how did you learn? Did you take a class, are you self-taught, was there something on-line that is free to watch? The chick is fabulous. WEll, actually the entire care!

Such a super colour combo! It all works so wonderfully well together. Love that fun chicken and sentiment too!

Your UK card magazines always have such fantastic freebies. I can purchase them here in one of our local bookstores. They're usually a couple of months behind and quite overpriced, but I do buy them from time to time!
