Viva La Rooster
Time is running out for This month's Viva La Verve weekly challenges. Lucky for you time is running out before I fall asleep sitting up holding this computer...... So I'll get straight to the point
Today's card is based on February's Week 1 Sketch with a Twist. The twist was to add some form of embossing. I placed my DP into the Textile embossing folder and ran it through the Cuttlebug. I then sanded the raised areas to create more of a distressed appearance. I also inked the edges with white ink. I cut the ovals using my Cricut and again ran the larger oval through the Cuttlebug using the Textile folder again. This time I inverted the embossed image to give it a bit of contrast. Both oval were sponged around the edges with brown ink. The Rooster was heat embossed using black embossing powder.
I added a printed cotton ribbon a few brads and Finito..............
