Rustic Rooster

Happy Friday! This is another new set from Stampin Up! called Rustic Rooster. A little tough to see, but I watermark stamped the so saffron background with one of the stamps in the set, very old world french. The postage mark stamp is french as well! I thought this would make a nice note so I left the inside blank, no sentiment.

I watercolored the rooster with my aqua painters and watercolor crayons after stamping it is Stazon Timber Brown. Paper colors are So saffron, rose red and old olive.

What kind of plans do you have for this weekend? I will finally be finishing an album I am making for someone for Christmas. I also bought some plastic test tubes and will be doing some Valentine's gifts this weekend so I hope to have those posted this weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!!!!
