Quick post here, I’m headed out of town (Thursday) and getting ready for this to post on Friday for the Bloggers’ Challenge! Our challenge for today was to use Brown, Sage and Neutrals. I actually like this color combination! This could also be considered a limited supplies challenge…cause almost everything in my studio is packed and ready to go!
I think Rustic Rooster is a great Hostess set…I was happy I finally earned it! I knew as soon as I saw the challenge that I wanted to use this set. Of course…it was still unmounted, so I had to spend time to do that first! I started with the background script stamp and inked it with Sage Shadow Craft ink on Naturals Ivory cardstock. Let it dry, and then stamped the Rooster with Chocolate Chip on top. I layered it on Chocolate Chip. Then I used a piece of designer paper from Autumn Vine (retired in the winter mini) and overstamped the swirl design on it with Chocolate Chip and tore the edge. I layered the designer paper on Close to Cocoa and stamped the swirl on it and tore the edge of it, too. I sponged around the edges of each piece with Chocolate Chip. Finally, I tore the edge of the base card and sponged along it. I added For You pennant stamped in Chocolate Chip on Naturals Ivory. And added a Cocoa button with linen thread in it.
Well…got to run! I’ll check out the other Bloggers’ creations when I return on Sunday!
