It is that time again. Time for some SNEAK PEEKS FROM CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

The set I am previewing today is called ROOSTER SUNRISE. I just love it. To me it has so many possibilities.

In my first card, I went with more muted colors. I watercolored the image then used the Cracked Glass technique on it, to give it a more aged look.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps ~ Rooster Sunrise
Paper: Textured Soft Suede, Peach Parfait, Old Olive, Watercolor paper
Ink: Black Staz-on, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, Blush Blossom, Baja Breeze, Distressed Vintage Photo
Accessories: Spellbinders Nesties, Aquapainter, Versamark, Glass Embossing Powder, Sponging, Bow Easy, Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Basic Grey Stitched Brad

For my second sample, I went with more of a bright cheery color scheme.

The rooster is colored with Copic Markers. I used Log Cabin Smooch Spritz on the yellow background to tone it down a little bit. I used the sheer ribbon to make a huge bow then used my heat gun to crinkle and shrink it down a bit. A yellow mother of pearl brad is in the center of the ribbon flower.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps ~ Rooster Sunrise
Paper: Yoyo Yellow, Brilliant Blue, Neenah Solar White(CDS)
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Marine Mist
Accessories: Copic Markers, Spellbinder Nesties, Sheer Ribbon, Heat Gun, Pearl Brad, Dimensionals, SU Large Oval & Scalloped Oval Punches, SU Lattice Embossing Folder, Log Cabin Smooch Spritz, Sponge Daubers
