* Janis turns 60: Chickens


One of my blogging buddies, Janis from Her Peaceful Garden is turning 60 this month and she's organised an ATC party. Each week in February she'll announce a new theme. Week 2's theme is ... And the Chickens.

Janis loves cats, in fact she owns about sixteen! She also has some chickens, so here's my homage to Janis's back yard :)

I used a lovely image from a Gecko Galz collage sheet. I distressed and inked the edges of the image and prepared a 2.5 x 3.5 cm background for it. I applied Vintage Photo ink to the ATC base then adhered some raffia trim. I layered a snippet of twine trim across the centre then added some cheesecloth and then popped the image on foam pads. Ivory twine was wrapped around one edge of the ATC and tied with a bow. A hessian flower and button was popped in one corner. 

I also made this quirky ATC: I'm calling it Cats Among the Pigeons Chickens!

  I used quirky and whimsical digital stamps from Vera Lane Studio (Cats and Crocks and New Day). The digis are coloured with Copics and fussy cut. The cats and chickens eyes have Glossy Accents applied so that they shine. They are popped on foam pads on top of a gelli print background with some natural fibres. A hand drawn border finishes the ATC.

Thanks for stopping by today.
