MHKDesigns: Chicken In

Good morning, friends! Dropping in quickly to share with you a card I made for MHKDesigns, featuring an image from the October release called Chicken In.

I decided to use the beautiful chickens for my card. This is an adorable image and a treat to colour. I thought going CAS would be the best route. A very brave step for me!  I applied a hint of Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass for the sky and Brushed Corduroy for the ground.  I dropped a few blobs of  Silver Liquid Pearls around the sentiment...don't know why I did that. Oh yes I do! Because I don't understand CAS - that's why! And to add insult to injury ... some LF Cloudy twine to finish the card.

Here's a closer look at the chooks. So I coloured these guys with Faber Castell Polychromos. For the grassy ground I used Copics and added depth with the Polychromos. I like how this turned out.
