No cards for ages then 2 in one day!
Here is my contribution for the challenge at CAS Mix Up which this time is Paper Piecing!
For this I used a chicken stamp from an Inky Doodles set. I used to buy from the designer at Craft shows at the NEC, but I don't seem to have been to one of those for a very long time! Although I've had it for years, I think that this is the first time that it has been used.
I stamped the image on to a piece of white card and then on to different areas on a piece of Christmas DP with poinsettias all over it! Even after carefully selecting the areas to stamp and cut out for the body of the hen, I still decided to darken the neck feather section a little more, using a marker. This image seemed quite appropriate for paper piecing as it is in three definite areas.
The sentiment is from Stampendous. A little sticking and die-cutting (I just had to shorten the sentiment cut a tad) and the card was done. I'm now about to set off for the tip to take all the packaging from our new kitchen tables and chairs, plus the old built in fridge from our last kitchen!
