Floral Rooster

One of my favorite new Impression Obsession rubber stamps that I've recently purchased is the Floral Rooster stamp. I just love this rooster!

For this card I watercolored the Rooster with Tombow Markers and then added lots and lots of stickles for glitz! I knew I wanted to add machine stitching to this card and the feather stitch on the outter border reminds me of rooster tracks. The background/designer paper is some beautiful Anna Griffin paper.

For this Merci Rooster card I wanted to give it a different look but still use the same colors. I colored this rooster with Prismacolor pencils and toned down the stickles to a bare sheen. The floral designer paper is a little scrap of Daisy Dee that I had that was just the right size. I added a button and some ribbon, rounded the corners and VOILA! Same stamped image but a bit softer.

I am sure this floral Rooster stamp is surely going to get a lot of use by me.

Speaking of poultry...I had better start preparing the turkey for our Thanksgiving Dinner today. To all Canadian bloggers I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving today!



  1. STUNNING! I love this rooster image! Never seen anything like it before- it is so cool! Your stitching is wonderful too!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving, Jennifer! The colors on the rooster really 'pop' when you have it placed against the beautiful background papers.

  3. Oh MY!! When you come back, you come back! This rooster defies words. And you know I've always got lots of words. If I drooled, your stitching would be sopping wet. Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Great cards! Happy Turkey day to all of you...


  5. I like both of these cards but I LOVE the second one. Nice bright colors. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I owe you a letter, and I'll get that out soon. xoxo

  6. Beautiful job on the rooster. I love this stamp too! I've only played with it once so far but your card makes me want to pull it out again!

  7. I love Impression/Obsession stamps and I wanted to get this one and couldn't think of what I would do with it. My friend bought it and I am emailing her your page. I think your two cards are fabulous!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them.
