Cracklin' Rooster

Good Morning, Stampers!

Sometimes a simple little technique can make all the difference. Here, I created a mask so it gives the illusion of the rooster in front of the wheat and it's so easy to do!

First, I stamped the rooster onto the circle. Second, I stamped another onto a piece of scratch paper and cut it out to create the mask. Then, I lined up the mask with the stamped rooster on the circle and stamped the wheat on top. Finally, I removed the mask and watercolored the rooster to finish it off.

I love the new crackle background stamp, too - it gives a nice rustic look to the rooster!
