Here, Chickie Chickie

Gingham has a definite country flair to it in my eyes and it's one of my absolutely favorite patterns, especially when on the diagonal.  Gingham = country = farm = chickens.  I wanted just a hint of chicken wire so used the PTI stencil template I made earlier and sponged a bit of yellow.  The chicks read a little bland so I colored in their combs and beaks.  Pop!

Btw, I read on a couple of blogs recently where they used their Silhouettes and a transparency to create a stencil.  Oh my damn. So brilliant!

The Details:  PTI white card stock, black card stock from old stash, Martha Stewart gingham paper and corner rounder, Memento Tuxedo Black and Dandelion, Spectrum Noir markers, MFT Contempo Cafe sentiment, Studio G chicks

I'm entering this in Addicted to Stamps and More! #79 CAS, Ladybug Crafts Give Thanks, CAS on Sunday #25 Lovey Dovey, and Cute Card Thursday #305 So Sweet.
