Hay, Chick!

Hi everyone!

Monday's Technique Challenge on SCS was to make a card using the Glitter Surprise technique. Fun technique. I posted it to SCS on Monday, but wanted to share it here too.

I used the new Crazy for Chickens set from Whipper Snapper Designs that was released on Monday, designed by Anna Wight!

The bales of hay were stamped in Versamark on the Pumpkin CS, coated with heat 'n stick powder, heated, coated with Pumpkin glitter from Art Institute Glitter, and heated again to set the glitter. The white panel with the chickens, the chocolate mat behind the chickens, and the punched sentiment are all up on separate layers of dimensionals.

The inside of the card has a chocolate chip panel with a white panel over top of that. One of the small chicks from Anna's set was stamped in both the lower left and lower right corners, watercolored with saffron and pumpkin ink, and outlined with the blue gray copic.
