Down On the Farm

 Today I'm joining Team A on the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog (Week 27) with our sponsor Angie Blom Designs and a new week for you to join in with us!

For my project card, I've used the rooster from the Coolest Chicks Ever and the sentiment 'If the Crown Fits Wear It'.  

Here's what I came up with...

I printed the rooster about 3" tall and used Copic markers for coloring then fussy cut around him and set him aside.

I started with a Kraft 5 1/2" card base and covered it in a blue that matched the rooster feathers.   I used the Taylored Expressions Chicken Wire embossing folder with red cardstock for the next layer.  The down on the farm and the chicken border came from an Echo Park Paper pack and were the next layer along with the rooster.  The last layer is the sentiment which I cut with a miscellaneous double fishtail swirl die and secured over the rooster and the bottom picture.  Lastly I added the wooden button with a thin strip of the blue paper as the 'thread' which 'ties it all together'.   

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
