Rustic Rooster


I have had Rustic Rooster for a few weeks now and keep trying to find the right way to use him without much luck, but this week I pulled him out for the lovely browns in the latest Sketch'n'Color Colour Challenge. I really do like the way browns and blues go so well together.

I stamped the script in second generation Close to Cocoa on Creamy Caramel, and stamped the rooster in Chocolate Chip directly on top. This was layered on Close to Cocoa, then Bashful Blue - all distressed. I felt this card needed to be quite simple (I'm quite good at the KISS principal I think, hence loving Stampin' Royalty's challenge this week!) so as not to lose or overpower the rooster. A little bit of ribbon and some background stamping did the trick.
I also featured the rooster on the inside of the card; Whisper White edged in Creamy Caramel on Bashful Blue.
I'm think this rooster might just find his way to my Grandpa for his birthday; after all, we did have chooks on the farm for years.
Thanks for visiting and hope you had a great weekend.
