Chickens on the farm!


Hi everyone, I wanted to play along with the challenge at CASology where the theme is Farm.


I've had the Stampin Up Hey Chick set for ages but this is it's first inking!
I've used an old Annabelle Stamps set for the little chick, and the greenery from a Flourishes set for the grass. The sentiment is also from an old Hero Arts set called Find Joy.

A few of these sets are over a year old, Find Joy is 2013 and so is the Annabelle Stamp set Easter Chickadee. Retro Rubber Challenge Blog has an anything goes theme so long as you use at least one stamp over a year old.

I scribbled tombow markers onto an acrylic block to colour the images with a water brush, so I'm 
also linking up to the anything goes watercolour challenge at Happy Little Stampers.
The optional theme is smile, I love chickens, their antics always make me smile!


At Word Art Wednesday it's also anything goes using a sentiment or a bible verse.
