STAMPlorations Release Week - Day 2


Why did the chickens cross the road?  To get to the recording studio.


Sorry.  But I just couldn't resist an Abbey Road-style tableau.  I couldn't keep them exactly in line, otherwise they would have been biting each other's bums - as it was, I've cut off John's nose and George's tail.  If you're familiar with the album cover, you'll realise that they're going in the opposite direction (on their way back to the studio).

Seeing as it's my turn to be showcased today in the STAMPlorations Release Week with my new set, Fowl Play, I thought I'd treat you to a couple more cards.


Mummy chick is feeding a worm to baby chick while daddy watches.  Blue daddy + red mummy = purple baby ;)  I accidentally smudged the mummy chick's beak, so I just drew in a worm to disguise it and added a hole in the ground.


This panel was left over from making my phone cover.  I just stamped the images then bleached the colour out with water, and scribbled in a bit of ground to er, ground the images.

Fowl Play

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the Design Team. It wouldn't be a release week without prizes, so here's what we've got for you:
