STAMPlorations Things with Wings CAS Challenge

All the STAMPlorations May Challenge Themes are "Things with Wings".
So many inspiring projects by the amazing DT.

Here is my birthday card for our 9 year old grandson, who has chickens!

I was inspired by Linda's (Life in the Craft Lane) cute "Fowl Play" birthday card!
Thank you, Linda.

I used my MISTI to stamp my"Fowl Play" chicken, so it looked like the hen
was holding the balloon strings.
Then stamped the hen again on a scrap of Strathmore Mixed Media paper and colored
using Zig markers and aqua painter brush.  Fussy cut body of hen and wing and set aside.

Next stamped the "Tweet Love" balloons with Archival black ink using MISTI
and colored with Zigs.
Next attached the colored and fussy cut hen.

I used my MISTI again to stamp the "Tweet Love" sentiment and chick.
Finally I added a strip of paper that I colored the same as the chickens to balance my scene.

Such a fun card to design for our chicken loving grandson:-)

Enjoy and happy stamping.  Hugs...
