Bloggers Challenge Week 8 - Inspiration

Ingredients: Love. When am I ever early at anything? I am posting my submission for the Friday Bloggers challenge a couple of days early. I am going to be really busy this weekend (going to the Scrapbook Expo for one thing) and won't have time. Plus, I was excited I couldn't wait that long. For this weeks Friday's Blogger Challenge we were supposed to ....pick something we are inspired by - say a pattern in a piece of clothing, colors in a rug. Some design that inspires us to create a card or project. Then we were supposed to post the picture of the item where we got our inspiration along with the finished project. This week I chose this little vintage spice rack. Just so happens I had a "happy mail day" and just received a new (albeit retired) stamp set in the mail TODAY called "Roosting" It's a retired Stampin Up set. I knew just the inspiration so I could utilize my new stamp set. I REALLY have a mix of stamps in this card. Notice the new A Muse background stamp "Tin Pie Plate" that I used double duty for dirt, the Crafty Secrets sentiment "Ingredients" and yes the Paper Tray sentiment "love". All other ingredients SU unless otherwise noted. The rooster is raised up with dimensional's. I used rose red and very vanilla card stock and a really orange ribbon. The clash in colors of the true orange and rose red really works in a one off sort of way. Maybe you can't see it here but it is nice IRL. I thought this could use an embellishment or some aging technique on the edges of the cardstock but phooey I couldn't think that hard tonight. I also tried to stay true to the colors of the inspiration piece, which I like a lot. I think Mr. Rooster looks very vintage, just what I like. I hope you like. ~enjoy
