Hi there, hope you are having a great week! Today I have a fun card to share with you with one of the FREE (with $60 purchase) stamp set called Home to Roost. I was hesitant at first about this set, as I just didn’t think I would want a rooster card…LOL..but once I started to see some samples with it, I was on board, so here is my version of a Rooster card.
And I am happy to say I quite love this set! I actually googled a picture of a rooster to get the colors and this is how I came up with the colors, but you can use any colors as roosters can be quite colorful and that’s what makes this set so fun! I also love the sentiments that came in this set. This card is focused on creating a sponge brayered background, which is super fun!
INSTRUCTIONS TO CREATE THE HOME TO ROOST CARD:
- I started out with the card base, which is Poppy Parade card stock 4-1/4 x 8-1/2 score and fold at 5-1/2.
- Next, I cut a 3-3/4 x 5 panel using the black and white patterned paper from the Botanical Butterfly designer paper and adhered it on the card front.
- Next, I cut a 4-1/2 x 3-1/4 Whisper White card stock and start out by stamping the tall grassy images using Pear Pizzazz ink. Than using sponge brayer and Coastal Cabana, I created the sky and using another sponge brayer and Pear Pizzazz, I created the grass. Using stampin dimensionals adhered it on top of the black and white panel.
- Next, I stamped the rooster using Stazon onto watercolor paper and using Aqua Painter I painted the rooster in. I used these colors: Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Pacific Point, Coastal Cabana and the grass is Granny Apple Green. Once it dried, I fussy cut it out, using mini dimensionals adhered it on top of the grassy image.
- Finally I cut a 1/2 x 3 strip of Whisper White card stock and using black Memento ink stamped the sentiment on and cut it up in pieces and using Snail adhesive I adhered it on the card.
