Less is More - Week 174 - use more than one stamp

 We've a fun challenge this week at Less is More:  use more than one stamp.  You can probably see from my cards that I had a lot of fun with this one!  There's a bit of a theme going on here, two similar style cards...

 
  My card uses the Artemio Picata stamp set, which I've just acquired.  I'm rather copying Chrissie here, who uses this set a lot.  My Light Sussex hen has chicks at the moment and it seemed a good idea to come up with this!   Five different chicken stamps, bit of simple masking, coloured with Copics.  Whiff of Joy sentiment, background created with two Inky Doodles stamps, then Distress Inked.  That makes eight stamps!  
 
  These groovy chicks are made with Technique Tuesday stamps, their down is stamped using a Visible Image flower stamp, or a tiny egg shape from Elusive Images for the chicks.  The sentiments are Hero Arts and Technique Tuesday, with Stamp Addicts Dotty stamp for the grass.  Five bird stamps used, so this uses ten stamps!   With hindsight I wish I'd only put one sentiment on, the white space is at a bit of a premium here:)
