Hey Chick, Birthday Card, 2017 Sale a Bration

I wanted to play with watercolor paper and I wanted to play with the "Hey Chick" Sale a Bration set.  I found a card on Pinterest.  You can see it here. I changed it a bit.  Oh and by the way, the background on the chicken is not as dark in person as it is in the photo.  

I alos got to play with the hexagon embossing folder too.  It's one of those thick ones like the knitted one from Christmas. I like to mist them first so the impression is deep, crisp and not torn.  Do that first so it has time to dry.  Then do your watercoloring so it has time to dry.  There's plenty of things to do in the meantime.

Cut the base of your card.  I cut mine from a folded half sheet of Basic Gray cardstock.  The hexagon piece was done using Smoky Slate.

I used the decorative paper from the "Urban Underground" package.  

I layered the chicken on a die cut circle of Cherry Cobbler.  And the words are from the same set. I used the oval sets to cut them out.  I set the chicken piece and the word piece in place using Dimensionals.  Everything else was taped flat.  It is a little different than the original card but that's okay, I like this too.  Though that background is bugging me, it's sticking out like a sore thumb!  LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
