Cock a doodle doo

Goodly morning to you all! Can you believe its Monday again already - are you ready for another mad week? I don't know where time goes - do you? Its performance week this week - we've got dress rehersal tonight and performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. I suspect this week is going to go even faster than ever.

Today I've got a card to share with you that I made using the chocolate Baroque steampunk birds set. As soon as I saw the cockerel I thought of kelloggs cornflakes and this card is a bit of a trip down memory lane for me.




I started off by using a mask from That special touch - I used wild honey distress inks onto card and covered it - then stuck the mask on and applied spiced marmalade  and barn door distress inks into alternate stripes. I stuck this to black card and stuck this onto a card. Then I stamped the cockerel onto card and also onto TH metal tape. I coloured part of the cockerel with my speccies then fussy cut parts of the metal tape and applied is to the image. Finally I fussy cut the whole bird and stood him atop a large wooden cog from That Craft Place. The sentiment is another one from the dylusions word set that I use so often!
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

AGOACpinkgemchallengeblog: For the boys
charismacharismacardz: A boy thing
sparklessparklesforumchallenges: Show us your new stash - stamp
tuesday throwdowntuesdaythrowdown: stripes

I hope you have a great day - and thanks for dropping by! Big Hugs from me! Oh and if I appear to have not been by for a week - I'm experiencing some difficulty with commenting on some sites - the side bar on the comment form freezes and I can't scroll down to publish my comment - its only a few of you that it has been affection - really sorry if I've been missing you - I only hope it sorts itself out soon!

Hugs

  4. Wow, I love this Rachel. Where do you find the time to create so much. I bought these stamps when they came out, and I've still not used them yet. (Maybe going away for a month was not a good idea, nice though!!).
