Home to Roost

Good Afternoon … well the weather seems to be changing here and I’ve spent most of the morning sneezing! Gotta love a change of seasons! Saleabration, on the other hand, is nothing to sneeze about and I have my lovely Rooster card for you today using the Home to Roost Stamp Set …

When I first saw this Stamp Set I wasnt really taken with it but I did love the wheat image. As it was free with a qualifying order I did decide to get it and I’m glad I did. It’s a great set to create with and it has some lovely sentiments

Now when I started to create with this set I knew the Rooster would look good coloured with my Stampin’ Blends. To work out what colours to use and where I simply searched Google Images for Rooster and chose one to copy.

Then thinking about my background I thought the chicken wire embellishments would have been great but they are now retired. The Hexagon Embossing folder would be the next best thing!

It wasnt too prominent so decided a light sponge would bring it out. After completing my card I thought it needed a little grunge so some flicking from my Stampin Write markers was in order.

This close up shows you how the light sponging worked for my ‘wire’ background. It also shows how the flicking of the marker gave it the right amount of grunge. I used Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay Stampin Write markers to tie in the colours of my Rooster’s tail feathers.
