Rustic Rooster

At my choir I was asked for more cards for men. It's always the same isn't it... we never have enough. I thought that this rooster was a great image for chaps. Here I have used my choir colours (I don't know if that was a sub-conscious choice), the ladies wear red and the chaps wear black and white plus a red cummerbund. I mounted the piece of vellum onto a white backing and attached the two with brads. I'm using my new deckle dies which I bought at the NEC and I love them!
Here is a second card using the same set of images! Finding a sentiment to match in with the script on this little background stamp was tricky. I settled for a computer generated one in the end and this is the closest I could find in my font file!

    Formerly IOW, think we have been blown away hehe

  4. What a fab idea with the black, red and white. Lovely card too and perfect for a man.

    Love that font you have used on the scond card too - both cards so different but equally brilliant.

  5. Oooooh, love both of these - both the crisp starched choir look and the vintage :). Like the way you mounted the rooster on music!

  6. 2 wonderful cards Chrissie, great image, love the colourways on both :-)
    Glad you had a great time at the NEC
    You did a great job matching up the pattern on the fabric, I can't see the join.

  8. Divine inspiration must have brought me here today. I was needing a layout for the pages of an ancient hymnal that's falling apart. The need is months old and I'm tired of fingering the pages and never coming up with a layout. So Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. There's sooooo much inspiration on this Blog!

  9. both fabulous, love the rooster, many thanks for joining in the CCT challenge, hugs Debx

  10. oh wow Chrissie - 2 completely different looking cards from the same image - both really fab - but the 2nd one tips the scales for me.
