Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Ballard Designs.....I flipped when I saw this cool Patriotic Rooster Art.....perfect to try out a new stamp set, Home To Roost. from my recent Stampin Up order. The rooster was stamped with Stazon Navy ink and partially colored with SU markers. Dye ink re-inkers were mixed with white acrylic ink to paint some of the rooster plus the background, as in the inspiration painting. Though the rooster was finished, I had no ideas for a card design, so I waited for the Featured Stamper challenge....this week's featured artist is Joanne aka kenaijo....congrats, Joanne!! I chose this gorgeous card to help me create a card for the rooster panel. I used the same embossing folder for the background, along with the same layout and button in the corner. The following dies from Divinity Designs were also used: Double Stitched Rectangles, Double Stitched Squares, Squares, Double Stitched Pennant Flags, and Pennant Flags. This card will go into my masculine birthday stash.
Thanks for stopping by!
