Our Favorite Technique Winner And DT Thursday

Tuesday T&T Background All Around

I fell in love with Cover-A-Card Rooster the minute I saw it.  I had in mind to do a card using some of the background as an adornment for the sentiment.  How things change once we get going.   Here is what happened:



  1. Stamped the Rooster background with a Toffee Crunch inkpad accidentally filled with Espresso Truffle ink (an accident by working on more than one card at a time. LOLOL)  Luckily spotted roosters are dark with both brown and black. :-)
  2. Painted the images with watercolors, but any medium will do.  Once done I really didn't want to cover them up with anything.

Assembling Card And Sentiment:

  1. After deciding to keep it simple so the background would show I cut it out using Spellbinders Curved Matting Basics die.
  2. Mounted that on a piece of red cardstock with rounded edges using a punch.
  3. Mounted a simple piece of green organza ribbon and bow.
  4. Used a Mini Circles Tag for the sentiment from Hydrangea, stamped with Espresso Truffle.

So you see it didn't take very long at all.  I had planned to cut out a bunch of the daisies, emboss from the back and attach to the sentiment on a larger piece of white cardstock.  Oh well, next time!!!
