Welcome to the SALE-A-BRATION edition of the Stamp Review Crew. This round we are featuring many of the fun products that are available for FREE during this years Sale-a-bration promotion through Stampin’ Up!
Today I’m featuring the Home To Roost stamp set. I haven’t had a chance to stamp around with the Home To Roost stamp set so I thought I’d give it a whirl on these cards and I am loving the results.
These cards are fairly simple to produce, if you like the design you could recreate easily. All you need is a couple of classic inks, an aqua painter and watercolor paper.
To create the background start with a water only wash on the watercolor paper. Pick to colors that might blend well together. Drop in one of those colors on the top of the water wash and blend downward. Drop in the other color on the bottom and blend upward to meet the first color you laid down.
Once the watercolor background is dry you can simply stamp directly onto the color with black ink. I really wanted the black image to pop so I heat set the image with black embossing powder.
For the ‘reed’ card I chose Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake. These colors look nice together and have a real landscape feel of earth blending into sky.
I took the same card design and flipped the colors and image to create this Rooster card. I used Soft Seafoam and Gorgeous Grapefruit for the watercolor.
Both cards also feature the Wood Textures Designer series papers. For a full list of supplies see the end of this post. If you purchase all the supplies to create these cards you can Earn the Home to Roost stamp set for FREE! Any $50.00 purchase during Sale-a-gration earns a reward.'
