ADFD June Club Kit

It’s here!  The June Club Kit from A Day for Daisies.  I love these sweet animal images!   Bucks, and Deer, and Chickens, oh my!

It’s also blog hop week, so make sure you visit each lady on the design team to leave a comment! One lucky winner will win the entire June Club Kit! Visit the ADFD blog for all of the details!

You should have arrived here from Kadie.  If not, you can go back to the beginning and start with Mila.


I began by printing my image and giving it a base coat with Copic markers.

Then I used Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits (oms) to add additional color and shading to the image.  After I colored the image, I sponged the edges with Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop, then distressed it.    I layered the matted image on patterned paper from MME, The Sweetest Thing, Tangerine, and finished it off with some gorgeous hand dyed seam binding from Sherry!    I also added lots of dried grass, cut back from my fountain grass this spring, to the nest to give it dimension and texture.

Next stop on the hop is Arielle!  Hope you are enjoying this weeks samples.  Next week it’s a challenge, so come back to be inspired by a whole new set of creations!

Sweet! The nest is cute, and perfect papers and colors for your hen and chicks. I don't know why I always associate red with chickens.
