I’ve Caused a Scene!

Good Wednesday mornin’!  Smiley from millan.net I’m sure you’re all thinking, what the hell as the BAD one done now?  Well, I did get out yesterday (now don’t faint or anything) but I actually put a few miles on my car.  I think it might be the first time I’ve driven in just about 3 weeks . . . I’ve become such a homebody!  Me getting out on the open road caused enough of a scene, however . . . .

This being Wednesday, it is Rubbernecker WACKY WEDNESDAY, and Candy has challenged us to make a card/project using chipboard or a button, or both.  This week, Rubbernecker will be awarding one winner, 40% off their entire order.  All the deets for this week’s challenge and how to participate are on the RN Blog.

What did I do to Cause a Scene?  Well, today you will see on the blogs’ of the Rubbernecker Red-Hot Mommas, previews/sneak peeks of new Kittie Kits – Cause a Scene Sets that will be released tomorrow!  During the release tomorrow, there will be a Blog Stroll celebrating Kittie’s new releases.  Just like the first Blog Stroll, there will be prizes and lots of fun!  You’ll need to start at the RN Blog tomorrow and follow the clues along the way.  You won’t be sorry!

Oh the scene thing . . . . I stamped with the new Chicken Coop Kittie Kit!

I don’t often create little scenes (only big ones) like this one, but I must admit that I got totally lost in the coloring!  I can see why Kittie thinks of her scenes as therapeutic.  Once I had the scene water colored, I sanded the edges down to leave just a hint of white.  The background paper was misted with water, scrunched up to cause wrinkles, ironed dry and then sanded to show wear and tear.  For the challenge, I used a vintage button that I found in all the buttons that my aunt gave me.  I also need to add that the color of the hen and chicks were inspired by all the photos that Anna has been showing on her blog recently.
