New Lockhart

When I first saw this Buttermilk Hen image that Karen Lockhart came out with, I just knew that I would have to add it to my collection. The details on it are so fun and precise that it makes coloring it a blast. I've also had a chicken wire background stamp in my stash for years now (remember, she who dies with the most stamps wins) - pairing it with this image was perfect.

My layout is from last week's SplitCoast Stampers' sketch challenge. You can find the sketch here. I opted to use octagons for the focal image because I thought it reflected the chicken wire background a bit better than any other shape that I had on hand.

I hope this sweet hen makes you smile as much as it does for me. Remember to come back tomorrow Wee & Whimsical Wednesday. Be well.
