This week is a colour week at Gingersnap Creations and the challenge is GC128 Yellow, Red and Brown. As we are also featuring livestock and farming this month, I knew this photo was perfect for the challenge. These are 3 of the hens at the cottage we stay at in the Isle of Wight and they are just gorgeous!
I created my background with stencils, stamps, sprays and paints and I embossed little golden chicken feet criss-crossing the page which made me smile!
I used guilding flakes on the pencil tops for some glittery sheen and a jewelled swirl by prima for a bit more dazzle!!
The big butterfly is a stamp by Lost Coast Designs. I stamped it onto old sheet music and dipped it in wax before colouring it with pastels and adding the wire antenna.
I hope my project has inspired you to enter this colour challenge - it's always great to see everyone's ideas.
