Once Again, I was up late stamping. This time I had no choice, I had to get my stampers club projects finished. After I was done though, I had a little time to create something for my Blog. The first card is from last night in the wee hours (2 am ) and the second one is something I did a month ago but matched well with my new one.
This first card uses The Faux wood technique which I absolutely love. I think I will be doing it regularly with farm animals. The whole card to me feels like the French countryside. It is rustic and warm. The CS used is Night of Navy, Confetti Cream, Very Vanilla, and a speckled blue which matches the Navy perfectly. The DP is Daisy D's Provence collection. I colored the chicken first on watercolor paper with Markers, then water colored it. I added Sakura Stardust pen to the wings, tail and crest. I then stamped the image unto the Vanilla, aged the paper with sponge and Caramel and Cocoa, and stamped the Weathered stamp in Cocoa. This was matted on Navy and then mounted on the matted Daisy paper ( which was also distressed). Ribbon was attached to the corner with gold brads, and this was then mounted on my final mats of the wood and Cream. May art ribbon runs across the card. I finished by adding Sakura Stardust to the nails of my wood.
This second card is cased from one I saw on Splitcoast http://http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/413590?cat=4633 I kept the feel of the card and the colors, but did my own coloring on the chicken and tweaked a bit.The CS colors are Real Red, Basic Black and So Saffron. The ribbon is SU black Gingham, Ink is Black and white craft, Stamp set is all Best of Cluck, and the chicken is colored with SU markers and water colored. Well I hope you enjoyed today's posts, I hope once again to be stamping into the wee hours of the morning. Now if I can just find the miracle cure for morning zombyisme!
