French rooster from Stampinback....

Hello lovelies!!

I'm a fickle thing.... I bought a fabulous new stamp from The Artistic Stamper today and was so excited and planned what I was going to make with it as I drove home.... then made a tag using something completely different!!   Here's what I made....


I used distress inks (Wild honey, bundled sage, antique linen, pumice stone and stained walnut) in the background, then stamped with Tim Holtz's background stamp from his lovely Papillion set in Gathered twigs Distress ink.  I used a chicken wire stencil over the top and then dotted some of Ryn's leafy branch around the edges.  The rooster is coloured with Neocolor crayons and then embossed with clear powder to make the colours pop.  (As usual the photo doesn't do it justice! )


I love this rooster from Stampinback, he's so handsome isn't he?!  I will make something with my new stamp.... watch this space lol!!  I'm entering this tag in the Make it Monday challenge. 
I hope you are having a good day, and thank you very much for visiting my blog. xxxxx
