Messing with backgrounds Tim Holtz method

Some time back I got a wonderful cockeral stamp (stampington & company) I have used it before but felt it would be better with a background I then stamped and embossed the cockeral in Detail Black stamp stuff.  I  then masked off the sun, and used distressed  inks as you would on a tag to make  the backgound I used torn paper to do edges to divide sky from earth. Then I added in the sun I added overhanging leaves and grass, using edge of card I thenmade the card backgound using same leaves, finally adding a chickend and ribbon to finish. I so enjoy messy play

Loving the blopping I will get to everyone I promise and leave comments.
