Tuesday with Tara {take 239} Good Cluck!

Happy Tuesday & Happy St Patrick’s Day!  With everything going on in the world right now, I thought it’d be fun to throwback to a punny card I made last year that just happens to be GREEN 🙂 I hope it brings a smile to your day!

For my card today, I was excited to play with the new Funny Farm set from Tim Holtz, together with Media Marks.

I created a background with Distress Oxide Inks in Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover & Peacock Feathers and set that aside to dry.  I stamped the ‘good cluck’ chicken on a white die cut circle and colored it with Watercolor Pencils & a bit of Distress Oxide that was leftover on my work surface from the background.

I had a variety of circles pre-cut, and played around with a layout for my card, finally deciding to scatter some smaller circles which I would stamp with the eggs from the chicken stamp and some of the markings in the same colors as my background.  I die cut the word ‘cluck’ from white cardstock (this is a Tim Holtz strip die called Chip Block) and inked up the word ‘good’ from the sentiment on Dina’s new flower set.  I decided that glitter would be a nice finishing touch and added a variety of Nuvo Drops to my word and the eggs in my images.

Greens and blues are faves of mine… so I decided to do sort of an ombré glitter 🙂

And that’s about it!  There’s some great images and puns in this stamp set, I’m still having fun with them a year later!   I’ll be back next Tuesday with a new card 😉

inky hugs,
