Strut Your Stuff!

Hi Jeanne here today!

I have a project to share today using a really pretty rooster stamp from Simply Stamps along with a custom one line stamp (Simply Stamps)I had made from  for the phrase.  Custom stamps aren’t just for addresses. It was fun to get a phrase I wanted made just the way I wanted it.

I started by making my background. I painted a simple watercolor background with a grassy area and a sky (leaving some areas white to give the illusion of clouds).

While I had my paints out I decided I wanted to get a little creative for my coloring on the rooster. I knew which colors I wanted to use so I made some blobs (technical term… haha) of watercolor on my paper.

Once my paper was dry I stamped my rooster (Designer Rooster Craft Stamp by Karmabee) with black ink.

I added some highlights to the rooster image with a white gel pen and then I used scissors to cut out my rooster. After cutting I went around all the edges with a black marker to eliminate the pesky white edges.

I stamped the “Strut Your Stuff” phrase onto a strip of white cardstock. This is a custom one line stamp from Simply Stamps. the custom line stamps are available in 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 lines so you can use them for so many things.

I created my watercolor background and let it dry completely. I stamped the sentiment in black ink. I used my Creative Corners magnets to hold my paper in place.

I stamped my kitty with my Mini MISTI from with black waterproof ink (Brutus Monroe Detail). Hint- Keep your stamp in your MISTI. I colored with watercolors and then let dry and restamped in my Mini MISTI for a super clean image. I cut out the kitty and added it to my card.

Here’s a one layer  card using 1/4″ red and 1/4″ white decorative tapes from Hobby Tape, stamps from Impression Obsession and my Mini MISTI (My Sweet Petunia).HT Heart Jeanne_Streiff

I stamped my images (WP704 Daisies & Hearts) and then I used the grid on my Mini MISTI (My Sweet Petunia) stamp positioning tool to lay out my tape in straight lines.  HT 1 Heart Jeanne_Streiff
