LOC Rise & Shine Postcards

I am a little bit late showing you card 2 for my Card Design Class next week at my LSS.  I usually make a more detailed card (you can see it here) and finish off with something that is quick and easy to make - can be finished at home if need be.

This card is very quick, I have made both masculine and feminine card, so that the ladies have a choice.  I have used the Layers of Color Rise and Shine art stamp set - this is such a fun set.

The Rooster Topiary has been stamped with Distressing Ink and coloured with SU Chalks and Blender Pen.

A collage feel has been achieve with using various images from the Rise and Shine and the Old World Flourish art stamp sets

For the feminine card I used the same art stamps

 adding more colour to the Mother Hen

and the adorable chicks - how cute are they!?!  I think they would be perfect for a baby card....

The POSTCARD sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Winter Post set - it is a favourite of mine!
This card is for the following challenges:
Shelly's Images - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes - Optional...Kraft
