Los Pollos Hermanas - Chicken Sisters card

The Chicken Sisters

My husband has really gotten into this posting Taco Tuesday cards. He reminded my about tacos and one of my favorite TV shows, - Breaking Bad. While Los Pollos Hermanos didn't do tacos, it is in the essence of tacos. 


The Chicken Brothers


I feel I captured the essence of the restaurant in the card. I cannot get enough of these chicks. Still not tired of them even with all that I have made with them. I wish they would stick around past March 31st, but they won't be available past that date. And they are FREE with a $50 order, which makes them that much sweeter.

Stamps: Hey, Chick Stamp Set Sale-A-Bration p. 17 Wood-mount • 143328 or Clear-mount • 143331

The chicks hats were hand cut from one of the sheets of designer papers in the Festive pack. And for this second card I stamped using the reflection stamping technique. It was my first time in all these years of doing this technique. I am not going to post detailed directions but here it is in a nutshell:

Stamp your image on your paper. Stamp it again in say, Stayzon ink on clear acetate (I used our window sheets), quickly lay that image down ink side down, next to your already stamped image. Press to transfer ink. Color or decorate as you wish. I butted the two chicks so their tail feathers overlap in this instance. And cut them out as one unit. Yes, I cut out all the chicks fussy cut style for these cards. The things I do in the name of art.... lol


Thank you for stopping by today!

Keep being creative, Sandy
