Is anyone else like me in that you have a lot of Stampin' Up! stamp sets and even some that have never touched ink once and yet there are other SU sets that you use over and over again? This fancy rooster, from the retired Stampin' Up! set called Roosting, is a stamp set I never get tired of using. When I saw Julee's Mojo Monday Week 74 layout for this week, I knew immediately that I wanted to use my Roosting set for the main image. Below is this week's Mojo Monday challenge layout:
I stamped the rooster on a cream colored cardstock and colored with Prismacolor pencils. I then masked the rooster and stamped the background with my Stampin' Up! Weathered background stamp in aged copper ink. I used a Martha Stewart lattice punch on black cardstock for the ruffled edges. The green striped background paper is also from Stampin' Up! and the flowered layered paper is from Basic Grey. I added a prima flower and some black and white gingham ribbon to finish the card off.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing today's card. Your comments and just the fact that you take a peek at my blog and cards means the world to me.
Until next time....
