12 Days of............Day 3

Well this is the third 4 x 4 inch plate done on the theme of 12 Days of Christmas. Day three represents '3 French Hens'. Will a parrot do? At least the words are French on the background.

I have used printed background paper and only one stamp on this piece.

The french script background paper was adhered to the base card and the left hand side was swiped with Impress peony purple inkpad. I then punched out two circles in another printed paper and two stars in the same french script paper. The circles were swiped with the Impress inkpad and edged in iris Colorbox chalk ink. The stars were edged with the same chalk ink. These were applied with glue stick as shown overlapping the edges of the card and trimmed to fit.

I then stamped a PaperArtsy stamp in black Stazon onto the patterned paper and cut this out and applied the image as shown.

The letters and number 3 are stickers picked out with a pink Sharpie pen and applied as shown and the whole plate edged in the iris chalk ink to finish.

That's about it and hope you like it !
