Here is my card for Teapot Tuesday. This was fun! I got to use my new chicken wire stamp and my new to me Hey Chick stamps.
For my chicken coop I ran my paper through a wood grain embossing folder, then inked it with slate ink to give it a weathered look. That plump blonde on the right has incredibly skinny legs for someone of her girth. Most difficult to fussy cut and they both ended up being amputated in the process. Hence the "straw" at the bottom to cover up the "oops". Enjoy!

Perfect stamps - what fun to be able to get them inky for TPT this week. I really like your coop, very weathered looking. I think the straw looks great. For skinny legs, I often stamp the image on the base and then piece the body over the stamped image. Some of the crazy birds are hard to cut too!

Oh, Vicky this is so creative to create a chicken coop. I love this and I am sure Betty will too! I hate fussy cutting, and had to laugh with you about the amputations, but you sure did a great job of camouflaging it with the straw. Wonderful layout as well!
