Hello and welcome to my blog. Today, I am going to share with you the card that I created on this weeks YouTube Live on Tuesday. I shared how to create a clean and simple card using the Home to Roost Stamp Set which can be earned as your free Saleabration item. Here’s a look at my card.

I started off my card with a piece of whisper white (4 x 5 1/4) on the background. I used the Tin Tile Dynamic Texture Impression Embossing Folder for the background of the card. Once I had this done I took my stampin’ blend markers and flicked on some ink splatters.

I stamped the rooster in tuxedo black in k and then used a plain old number 2 pencil and did the shading. My big trick for helping people with shading is to start off with a light touch; put the pencil as far back in the hand as possible this allows for less pressure on the pencil and creates a lighter shade. Next you want to come down to the middle of the pencil and shade this allows for a little harder pressure and where you want the biggest amount of pressure you come place the pencil in the normal writing position. Which you will see in the video below. I cut out the rooster to get him ready for the card. I added a stitched rectangle silver foil frame to the front of the card. To create the frame I used the new Rectangle Stitched Dies in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. This created the perfect little anchor for the rooster.
