Chickies need a safe place to be, so she has a "chicken wire" background made with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder (129378). Perfect!
To make the "chicken wire" run ink on the inside of the Honeycomb Embossing folder on the side tha sticks UP. This doesn't have to be perfect to make it look a bit shabby.
Place your cardstock - I used Delightful Dijon - on the clean side and carefully close the inked side over onto the cardstock.
Hold firmly in place.
You can either rub your hand over it, which works well, or use the bottom of your Multi-purpose glue bottle. A bone folder would also work well. I tried using one of my clear blocks but found it tended to scuff up the block.
Open to find your "chicken wire". Ta Da!
