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.
