Home To Roost

I made this card after seeing a few cards my friend, Buffy made using this stamp set.  It is one of the free sets you can get with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration.  It is called Home To Roost.  I am not a very good colorer and I usually shy away from animal stamp sets but I thought it one was kind of cute.  I have had it for a while but didn’t take it out until Buffy motivated me.

The colors I used on this card are Cherry Cobbler, Mango Melody, Very Vanilla and Night of Navy.  I stamped the rooster and the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored the rooster using my Stampin’  Blends.  Truly the only way I can halfway color is to use the Blends.  They make it so easy because they are alcohol markers so they don’t streak and blend well together.  Then I stamped the grass on a piece of Mango Melody cardstock and layered everything together.  It is quick and easy card to make and perfect for a beginner stampers.
