Home to Roost — Monday Montage #131

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of nine stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

Not that I have an affinity for roosters, but I was drawn to the Home to Roost stamp set in the Sale-a-Bration catalog because I knew it would be fun to color.  My grandparents had a farm in Kansas and I would spend my summers there as a child.  I learned quickly to keep my distance from the rooster.

Sure enough, this is a fun image to color.  I started by sponging on some Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake ink on a piece of whisper white card stock.  I then stamped the grass image a couple of times over it with some stamped-off Old Olive ink, and cut out a circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies.

The rooster was stamped and colored with markers, and cut out by hand.  The sentiment comes from the Well Said bundle.  The embossed background was made with the Corrugated embossing folder.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog.  I always love seeing what she makes!  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing.
