I used my new Rooster from Stampabilities for this one (got it over the holidays), and this gorgeous new Paper is from Mind's Eye, matted on Chocolate Chip cardstock. I also tried a new technique...for me, anyway...You'd think I would have made better use of my Kaleidacolor stamp pad "Autumn leaves" by now, but the thought just crossed my mind when I looked at the rooster to color it with the multi-colors rather than the brown I had planned. I think it turned out very well. I only used colored pencils a little on his neck and feet--nowhere else. What a pleasant surprise!
The raffia and cowboy hat are from...and you may feel free to laugh...a cowgirl themed bridal shower card I received and promptly took apart months ago! :) Am I terrible or what?
Have a marvellous day!
