Why did the chicken?

I just managed to finish this in time for the Limited Runs Progressive Challenge on their Facebook page.


Materials used: 
Limited Runs – Progressive Challenge Image 
X-Press It card
That’s Crafty card
brown textured card
7×5″ card blank
Copic pens:
feathers – E31, E33, E35, E39
head feathers and wattle – R22, R24, R27, R29
feet – Y17, YR15, YR18
beak – Y15, Y17, E15, E18
fence posts – E31, E33, E35, E39

I would be the first to admit that I cannot draw to save my life but I had no option but to attempt to draw in the background. Fortuneatly much of it is covered by the sentiment.

In case you were wondering why the chicken crossed the road, inside the card it reads ‘To wish you happy birthday.    

Thank you for popping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
