Magazine Addict – Craft Stamper January 2012

This month’s free stamp is a cockerel with ‘cock-a-doodle-doo’ written under it. The first thing I did was to cut the writing away from the image , to make it more versatile.

I punched a circle out of paper and used this as a mask while I inked glossy cs with ‘Old Paper’ distress ink. Then I used the paper with the round hole as a mask to spray ‘Sunflower’ Glimmer Mist for the sun. I stamped the Molly Bloom fence on top and coloured it in. I stamped the cockerel onto a leftover piece of alcohol inked paper.

Regular viewers of My Perfect Life may notice that this same piece (A5?)  of alcohol inked background paper has been employed on a range of projects! I believe this really is the last scrap now. What great service!

I'd like to enter this for the following challenges:
