In February, I was lucky enough to win a stamp and die set of my own choosing from Technique Tuesday from Miriam Prantner's blog and I could not resist the chicken family which has some great sentiments as well. The current Twofer challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity to start using these stamps, since it's all about pets.
Although we don't keep any chicken ourselves, we do have several friends who do, and they sometimes surprise us with fresh eggs. In addition, our landlord is also keeping chicken (and one turkey). We can catch a glimpse of them when we are sitting outside on the porch. For one of our cats, this is nog enough. She goes to visit them every day and sits there staring at them for a good while.
For my first card, I started by stamping the sentiment and focal image and then stamped the image repeatedly to fill up my panel. I coloured my chick with Prismacolor pencils.

For my second card, I decided that this small left-over panel from last year's shaving foam experiment would work well with this fun sentiment. I stamped and die cut the image, coloured it with my Prismacolors and popped it up on foam squares. I adhered my panel to a dark blue card base.
