2RB Week of Peeks - Sgt. Chicken

Today's sneak peek of's new stamp sets for April is of a set called Sgt. Chicken. 2RB's new stamps will be released on the website on April 13th. Check out 2RB's blog for peeks by other Design Team members.

I decided to use the Sgt. Chicken set because I have a friend in the military who will soon be celebrating a birthday. I figured what better way to wish him a happy birthday than by using a military chicken.

I used tan CS as the card base with a strip of striped DP from sei's Alpine Frost collection along the bottom. There is a piece of brown striped grosgrain ribbon along the top of the striped DP.
The sentiment is stamped with Jet Black StazOn on tan CS using Martha Stewart acrylic letter stamps, a "Happy Birthday" stamp by Hero Arts and "Attention" from the 2RB set. The corners are punched with a hole puncher. It is matted on kraft paper with a small copper brad at each corner and adhered to the right-hand side of the card.
The chicken was stamped with Jet Black StazOn onto Basic Grey DP and colored with watercolor pencils. The dog tag and chain are colored with a Silver Stardust pen by Sakura, and the eyes are colored with a black Glaze pen with a dot of white ink. I trimmed the image and used pop dots to adhere it to brown CS matted on kraft CS and tan CS and adhered to the right-hand side of the card.
Be sure to check the 2RB blog to see all of the sneak peeks this week, then visit on April 13th to see all of the stamp sets being released.
