Hello Hetty here with a card for Chinese New Year that will be the Year of the Rooster, so here some inspiration with the stamp of the rooster that you can find here. This card looks complicated, but I can assure you it is not. I have some pictures on my Craftchaos Blog. This is how it works: first you stamp the background. Stamps some roosters with versamark and emboss them with white embossing powder. Take red and orange ink and color the paper with a blending tool. The white embossing powder works as a resist. Then I stamped the words Year of the Rooster (that comes with the rooster stamp) at random in black. A few drops of water and the background is finished.
For the red circle i stamped the rooster in black and colored him with pencil. After adding some red/white twine around the card I added the circle with foam tape on top. The Happy New Year sentiment is from the Holiday Greetings and after stamping it, I cut it apart and added it to the card like the rooster called it out.
I hope you will visit my blog too and besides seeing the tutorial, there is an ather card with the rooster. Thank you for looking and have a creative day!
