I combined 4 challenges in this card. Two Dare to Get Dirties and and old colour challenge that was used again in the TLC178 challenge which I haven't figured out quite what to do about yet and also the inspiration challenge with roosters.
Lauren's challenge was to make a monochromatic card, Michelle's challenge was to make a masculine card, the IC137 was about roosters and outhouses and the TLC178 challenge was to use bravo burgundy (or any really dark reddish colour) and creamy caramel.
This is the card I came up with. The rooster made me think oriental, the oriental made me think of the fortune stamp I got at Michaels last week for 1/2 off and then I needed something for the background so I used my CB to emboss and then coloured on top with bravo burgundy marker. I was also trying to approach this from the monochromatic angle and make it look like a masculine card rather than something girly. Hopefully it worked.
Hope you like my card. These challenges are so fun to do and I and really pleased with how this card turned out!
