Hello there stampers! Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments new inspiration challenge for April. I chose the top picture and was inspired by the colors and the chickens. I also used the sketch from Global Design Project this week to help me out.
I think the rooster from Home to Roost looks pretty nice in pastels!
I also went with a distressed look by stamping the Crumb Cake background with the Handwritten background stamp after I had stamped of the Crumb Cake ink once. I used my bone folder and ran it up and down the paper to break down the fibers and then I crumpled it up before straightening it out again. I distressed the edges by taking my fingernail and running it up and down and then curled up the edges a little.
I punched three little flowers with the Bitty Blooms punch pack and crumpled them up a bit too.
The Ticket Border punch that I ran along the bottom of the main panel is distressed some as well.
Here's a list of my supplies....

Ink: memento black, balmy blue, flirty flamingo, daffodil delight, bronze blends markers, as well as all of these colors in inks for the sponging
