Wowzers, another great IC site! I'm glad I printed out a picture of the one I chose because I don't think I could find it again! lol I just knew what stamp I was going to use and my favorite bg being the newspaper......onto the card......
Glued some white cs to newspaper, cut out a panel and stamped, clear ep my rooster here. Then colored with re-inkers.
For the ground part I stamped itty bittys and sedge filler, and added some color.
Sponged soft suede on edges and dragged the antique linen pad over top to age it.
Thought to my self, how can I put a shadow of the rooster here like the IC piece has. DUH. just stamp another rooster with tea dye! Wal-la.
Layered my image panel on some new bg dp I made last weekend. Sponged soft suede, my new favorite color, on the edges. Put on a kraft card.
Made some punched and layered black dots that I put tiny buttons with jute on. Well, there you have it. Hope you like it and my new favorite picture taking place!......TFL :0)
Hi Sis! Thanks for helping me choose which photo to use!
P.S. Must clean house and go to DD new house. Be back later to comment on all your wonderful cards!!!!

WOW! Your work just blows me away..this is awesome! It's funny about what you said about finding your inspiration piece again in the gallery. I usually send an email to myself for easy remembering because otherwise, I would be lost without it. Love the newspaper effect with the way it was colored. Nicely done!
