Hey Chick


I love this fun Green Acres set from Paper Smooches - it's one of the first ones I got over at i {heart} papers!  I bought it for the pig (I loooooooove pigs), but I really love this farmer too.  His toothy grin cracks me up!

I colored the farmer and animals with my Spectrum Noir markers after stamping them in Memento Rich Cocoa ink (on Ultra Smooth White card stock):

Farmer:
Overalls: TB1, TB2
Hat: EB1, EB2, TN1
Shoes: EB1, EB2
Shirt: BG1, BG2
Hair: GB1, GB8, GB10
Skin: FS8, FS3, FS2 (cheeks: CR3, Freckles: EB3)

Hen: TN3, TN4, TN5, CR8
Chick: CT3, CT4, GB5

I added a strip of Echo Park's About a Boy paper before popping my Scallop Tag up on dimensional dots (that's Hemptique Twine in dark brown and natural tied on there).   All together this took maybe 20 minutes to make, and hopefully it will make the recipient smile!

Supplies: 
Stamps: Green Acres (Paper Smooches)
Card Stock: Ultra Smooth White (Crafter's Companion)
Patterned Paper: About a Boy (Echo Park)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Coloring Medium: Spectrum Noir
Accessories: Hemptique Twine
Tools: Scallop Tag die (Paper Smooches)
Pin It
