Such an Elegant Rooster

Hi everyone!

Hope you all had a nice weekend? My weekend started on Friday, when I attended the wedding of a very close friend on the other side of the country, then travelled all the way back home to be on Student Information Market at the university the next day, then a spot of shopping. Hubs joined me in the evening and we had a fantastic steak dinner and then went to the cinema to see Gravity. Stunning images, but I thought the story was a bit weak. I spent Sunday lounging, crafting and catching up on my DT duties.

But now another week is starting and a new Ooh La La challenge is too! The theme this fortnight is "Things with Wings". I've used an image of a rooster from the new Shawn Jenkins Collection CD, which has some fantastic craft sets, both everyday AND Christmas! It would be great to see you all joining us :)

* Elegant Rooster image & DPs from the Shawn Jenkins CD, worked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink
* MS Picket Fence border punch
* Pebbles Black Chipboard Chips
* Personal Impressions sentiment stamp
* Pearl from stash

* Let's Craft & Create (Favourite Ink Technique) Using Distress Ink to age images and emphasize piramage
* The Squirrel and the Fox (Things with Wings)
* Paper Creators Crafts (Punches or Dies) I've used a border punch on the front and inside of the card
* Fussy & Fancy (One for the Boys)
* Whimsy Stamps (Vintage or Shabby Chic)
* A Little Bit Crazy (A Little Bit Shabby)
* Natalie & Amy (Shabby Chic)
* Charisma Cardz (Animals)
* Totally Gorjuss (Wings and Things)
* Creative Moments (Anything Goes/Autumn)
