Now for a bit about my project.

This sentiment, which is part of the Chicken Run stamp set, makes me chuckle every time I read it.

After die cutting my various squares using the Grand Squares dies from Spellbinders, I die cut the top right corner of the smallest square with the Mixed Media dies by Sizzix.  I heat embossed the sentiment with Black Detail embossing powder and I stamped the chickens with Black Soot Distress Ink.

Now it was time to make the sentiment come to life.  I added various glitters in different patterns on each of the chickens to give them  their unique look.  The glitters used were Lator Gator, Jasper Blue, Fiery Fuchsia and Galaxy Night.

I created a border around the edge of the middle square using 1/8" Tear-ific Tape and more Galaxy Night glitter.  A bit of raffia adds the finishing touch to this country style card.

Your next stop on the Nov Reveal Blog Hop is Shona and I know she has created something fabulous!  Don't forget to leave each of us a comment for your chance to win all five of the new stamp sets released this month.

This is brilliant. First of all, how clever to make part of the sentiment panel like chicken wire. The paper you chose for the background is awesome. AND the colorful glitter on the silhouettes is awesome. I love this.
