Rustic Avocado

Today Limited Supply Challenge was to use black as your main color, therefore you must have a large space of black. YIKES, kind of scary... So I decided to use my new Rustic Rooster set from SU. This set was a must have as my kitchen is all roosters and pears, and how could I pass up this adorable rooster. This was the first time I inked it and I just think he is sooooo cute.

So, for the challenge. I decided to use Papertrey Inks Ripe Avocado paper and SU Basic Black. I used the cuttlebug and embossed the black paper, rubbing over it carefully using a White Stazon to accent the letters. I also decided to sew the black paper to the Avocado paper using a zig zag stitch on my sewing machine. Before stitching I attached the papers using an adhesive so they would stay where I wanted them. I used my Nestabilities for the main image cutout, trimming around the white panel using a black piece of paper to help it stand out. I stamped the Rooster using Basic Black ink and colored it in using Watercolor Crayons, also from SU, blending the colors using the blender pens. The larger panel was cut using Ripe Avocado and embossed using the Swiss Dots folder. I added some brads in the corners of the small panel, added some black accents to the top right corner and a small piece of chipboard for my sentiment. I added ribbon in the center. TFL!
