Roosters and Chickens! I'm still stuck on the farm and decided to go a little whimsy on this one, lol! The spots on the first rooster were inspired by artist, James Wiens. He's colored up with Copics and raised by running the die through three times, stacked and glued together. It's hard to see the different dimensions but the chicken wire frame has been popped up higher than the center layer. His straw is natural jute twine that has been unraveled. Adorned with a bow and a little hello.


I decided to "doodle" a little more using the same Roosters and Chickens Die Set! How cute is the Scribble Checkerboard Cover a Card for this background?!!  You are My Sunshine says it all!

Thanks for looking and for all the wonderful comments!
See you tomorrow for day three!
