Today, we are celebrating the release of the new "Chicken Scratch" set.


For my card, I decided on a darker, vintage look.  I stamped the chicken wire onto Hazelnut Tan paper then added a piece of Sun Ripened Tomato behind it.  I colored the hen and basket with Copic markers.  I used Deepest Mahogony as the base and used my Score-Pal to add score lines for texture.  I inked the paper and ribbon for a vintage, worn look.  The rooster charm was quite shiny, so I also used black Staz-On to give it an aged look.  The stamps, papers, ribbon, and charm can all be found at Mark's Finest Papers. 


Here is the Blog Hop LINE UP for today:
