These two A2 size cards feature the Home To Roost stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Link to My Stampin' Up! Store

Before I started using this set to make cards, I began by stamping several roosters onto Post-It tape and fussy cut them to use as masks.

The rooster was stamped on Whisper White CS using Basic Black Archival ink and colored using Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry and Garden Green Stampin' Write markers.

Next I used a circle mask to cover a spot for the sun and one of the rooster masks to cover the rooster.  Then sponged the background with Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz and Marina mist inks.

 I removed the circle mask and laid down the leftover piece of the mask around the circle and sponged it with Crushed Curry ink.

The grasses were stamped with Soft Suede ink (1st and 2nd generation stamping).  Then I removed all the masks.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was stamped with Soft Suede ink.

The bottom mat is Night of Navy CS.  The layered piece was mounted on a White Card Base.

This card is very similar thought I used some Whisper White ink to stamp some "clouds".

Early Espresso ink for the grasses.

And didn't fill in the circle spot with color.

This sentiment is from the same stamp set.

The bottom mat is Old Olive CS.
