Step 1: Using a Mini Ink Tool with clean foam, apply dabs of paint randomly over a sheet of Mixed Media Cardstock. Clean the foam between colors with water, and then apply a new color until the whole sheet is painted. Use a baby wipe to marble and swirl the colors before the paint dries.

Step 2: Cut a piece of the masterboard you’ve just made 4 x 5 1/4 inches to use for the card front, and use the rest later and for a another project. Using Jet Black Archival, begin stamping the houses from the Right Up Your Street set, and the trees (They are really leaves) from the How Does Your Garden Grow all in the upper portion of your card, setting the barnyard scene. Stamp the border along the bottom of the card, and then the chickens in the middle of the scene.

Step 3: Use a detail paintbrush to paint in the stamped images. Add Postbox Red paint to the top the chickens’ heads making combs, and under the beak making wattles. Using the chicken with the script and numbers in the body, stamp her on the extra piece from the masterboard, paint her to look like a chicken like before, and cut her out. Adhere the cut out chicken into the scene with an Adhesive Sheet cut to size. Add the sentiment with the Label Letters, and then randomly doodle over the card with the black and white Paint Pens. Adhere the card front onto a black cardstock card cut 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches, to the card front. Doodle around the border of the black card as well.
