Fs70 Rooster case

Todays featured stamper is Cindy(YLM). Cindy had a rooster card in her gallery that I HAD to case. Ive had this rubbernecker rooster for awhile but Ive yet to make a card using him.

I wanted to give my prismacolor pencils a break for a couple of days so I pulled out my watercolor crayons. I embossed the image b/c somewhere (I cant remeber where) I read its easier to color the watercolored images if they are embossed. Dont quote me on that though!LOL! I know now why my crayons had a layer of dust on them. I needed the watercolor queen Kittie here for some tips and tricks! I really liked how Cindy added colors to her rooster so I tried to add some red and green to the tail feathers. The keyword is TRIED!LOL! I also added some white gel pen accents and sponging to my image.

The card base is night of navy stamped with flannel plaid tone on tone. I stamped the SU retired chicken wire background inked in close to cocoa onto creamy caramel. The rooster is layered on real red. The two circle tabs are more mustard and garden green. I used a pewter large eyelet on both circles. The layout on my card is Holly's (Toy) sketch thsc16 I did leave off the sentiment panel just b/c I didnt have the room!LOL! I made 3 sketch cards this weekend already! Yaaayyy for me!LOL! Have a great day!

You are getting way ahead of my little girl and that is not nice. You know I am old and have a hard time staying caught up. This is darling. Glad you dusted off the WC Crayons.
