Home to Roost

I have not used the Home to Roost, Sale-a-bration stamp set very much. So I thought I would give it one last run. And I had not used the Crackle Paint Background Stamp at all….WHAT! OMG, why did I wait so long. Its fantastic, especially when you use your Stamparatus.

A closer view. My card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″. The Whisper White is 3 3/4″ x 5″.

Since the Cracker Paint stamp is large you really can’t use the magnets to hold your paper down, so I use temporary adhesive or a tiny bit of Snail. Give it a test run before you put ink on the stamp.

I inked up the Crackle Paint stamp with Crumb Cake Ink, and then decided I wanted it a big darker, so I inked up again and stamped. I love the Stamparatus!

I was originally going to watercolor the rooster, which is why I was using Watercolor Paper. Then decided to use my Stampin’ Blends. You can see that it didn’t stamp very well on the Watercolor Paper. No worries, just ink and stamp again. I think I inked it 3 times and was happy with the image. I’ll list all the Stampin’ Blends at the end. I have no idea what colors a rooster is, so I went to Pinterest and looked at others who had colored the rooster.

I die cut the Watercolor Paper with the largest  Stitched Oval Framelit, and matted it on the largest Oval Scallop, in the Layered Ovals. Dimensional went on the back. After adhering the Crackle Paint piece, I tied a Braided Linen Thread around the card, then added the Oval. I stamped the sentiment and punched with Classic Label Punch and added a flower from the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack and a few Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots. I put Mini Dimensionals on the right side and a little bit of Snail on the left side because I wanted it to “hang” over the Oval.

You can make your flat flower curve using the end of your Paper Piercing Tool and a mat by pressing in the center.
