Three Step Card

Some Sale-a-bration stamps.
These cards were great fun to make...once I got my measurements sorted out.
I used mostly pencils to colour in on the aqua card and sponge brayers to colour the background.
For the orange card I used mostly markers (when I had the right colours) & Blender pens and ink pads for the rest.  

Inspiration for this card came from Paperwishes.com on Pinterest

These cards were a lot of fun as well. It was actually around Easter time when I made these cards (yes...that was a while ago) so I thought they could have been good for Easter cards too... with chickens and eggs and all that.
I made a mask for the chicken and the egg so I could sponge crumb cake all around them and still have a white chook and eggs. 
I was going for a hen house look, so the hexagons embossing folder was perfect for chicken wire. Just ink up the hexagon outlines (the side with the logo on it) I used a rubber brayer and smoky slate ink, then press onto cardstock - I did this step after stamping, sponging & colouring, so the ink wouldn't smudge.
