Framed Chicken

I was in a card swap a while back and had a wonderful swap partner that lives in South Africa...Nettie...she sent me a couple of these chicken images...Well, I had no idea where they were from and she told her they were Wallies...and she did not realize how much I love chickens...so, I decided instead of making cards with them...I wanted to frame them and hang them in my kitchen...I started with my largest frame/mat die cut, from black cardstock, it is 5 x 7 in size I cut a pattern paper frame, but only wanted part of it layered onto the black base frame...I ran the top section thru the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, added some foiling adhesive and then used my gold and copper foiling to color the embossed dots...
I then ran the bottom section with the pattern paper thru the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and rubbed black ink over those dots...I added the gold ribbon between the black cardstock and pattern paper sections, taped it onto the chicken image and put it in a pretty gold frame from the dollar store...There are two of the Wallie chickens, the other one is a tad different...as soon as I get it finished, these will hang in my kitchen...Thanks so much Nettie...I am very happy with my new framed chicken prints...
