Artist Trading Card / Mark's Finest Papers

Artist Trading Card 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"

I finally got my Feb / Mar issue of Stamper's Sampler in the mail and as soon as I seen the cover I new what my next Mark's Finest Papers project would be.  "Don't fence me in!" was a perfect sentiment for the "Chicken Scratch" stamp set.  This set was still in the store until recently, but now I don't see it.  Maybe because they just had a new release with the cutest chickens HERE.  And you can get the chicken wire in this set HERE
Thanks for stopping by!!


Project Details
I googled rosters to try and get an idea of how to color this little guy ... hey I'm a city girl, I've never seen a rooster in real life.  I used R27, Y11, E15, E09, and E33.
Trim watercolor paper 2 1/4" x 2 1/2".  Stamp chicken wire image with VersaMark and heat emboss with black embossing powder.  Color edges with yellow watercolor crayon (Lyra).  Carefully pull color to center so that it is lighter toward the center.  Ink edges with black ink and doodle around edges.  Adhere black lace (Hobby Lobby) across top and bottom of panel.  Adhere to pattern paper covered ATC (2 1/2" x 3 1/2").  Ink edges of ATC and doodle around edges.  Stamp rooster, color with markers (Copic), and trim.  Adhere.  Type words on computer, trim, ink edges, doodle around edges and adhere.  Embellish with plastic black sequin flowers (Queen and Co.  - really old from my stash).  Tye yellow thread into a know and pull through hole in center of flower before adhering.

You can view all of my ATC's HERE

Excellent job on the rooster, Ms. City Gal! We had one when I was little -- I remember them telling me the story of the rooster chasing me -- guess it was so traumatic that I blocked it out!!
