Today's card is designed in a rather French Provincial style. I wanted to make a thank you card for my friend that went to Paris and brought me back macarons. Those are the kind of friends you need in your life!
The first step was to create my own background I used the Rooster Cover a Card stamp along with some Sepia Versa Fine ink. The Rooster background is a great one if you like to create patterned paper with a country/rustic look. It is hard to see the whole image on my card, so here is a picture of what the stamp looks like:
For the central part of the card, I used a French Script in the same Sepia ink as the background. The French lettering is a perfect design to have if you do a lot of collage work. I sponged some Tea Dye Distress Oxide ink around the lettering and then let all the ink dry really well. As a final step, I added my Rooster and embossed him with black embossing powder.
