I decided that my first card might be too much coloring for my class attendees last week, so I whipped up an alternative using the Hex (okay Hexagons) dynamic embossing folder. I'd seen several demonstrators put ink inside the embossing folder, but adding ink with a sponge just to the apex of the wire after embossing looks the most like real chicken wire in my opinion.
I used the new Watercolor Pencils for both cards. I made a Rhode Island Red and a Plymouth Rock chicken. So silly...You can see the new 1/8 inch grosgrain Real Red Ribbon too.
