Now this is something to sink your teeth into.  When I saw this new release from Stampendous I knew I had to do something “over-the top”  After coloring the rooster I put my markers away and prepared to get messy.  A lot of layers are applied here and I had to step away to stop myself from going more nuts.  I decided to teach this in a class at Scraps of Love next month.  If you live local or want to make a drive be sure and sign up for the few spots that are left.  You will learn tons of techniques plus get to play with some awesome products.  Refer to the Class Schedule tab above for details.

Paint book board using Peacock pearl and a paint brush.  While this layer dries take some tissue paper and apply a thin layer of the gloss Decou-pageā„¢ to one side.  This will be used as an adhesive.  Apply the tissue paper to your choice of areas by scrunching onto painted board.  Place the hexagon metal stencil onto the book board.  Using a palette knife spread on DecoArtĀ® Dimensional effectsā„¢ in a thin layer and allow to dry.  Apply dimensional pearls randomly on piece.  Once dry paint over everything again with the Peacock Pearl paint.  Take some of the elements you wish to use later, paint with the Peacock pearl paint and set aside.  Let dry.  Using your finger, lightly rub on the DecoArtĀ® Metallic Lustreā„¢ Copper Kettle over parts of the project such as the hexagon paste and the crumpled tissue paper.  Cover the elements with the Copper Kettle Luster.  Let dry.  Take the Black Tie acrylic paint and using your finger apply to parts of the project, getting it into the cracks of the textures.  Let dry slightly and the gently white off exposing the texture.  
Stamp the Rooster Elements using Memento Tuxedo black stamp pad onto smooth white card stock.  Color with alcohol markers.  Put a thin coat of the gloss Decou-page over the rooster and let dry.  Cut Rooster out.   Using your Versamark stamp pad and the bark embossing powder, emboss the rooster elements stamp onto the background.  Some of the image will not show up due to the texture.  Heat set the embossed image.  Using foam tape, pop up colored rooster on the base piece.  Apply large painted cogs and gears using foam tape and regular adhesive depending on if you want the cog popped or flat.  Using the gloss Decou-pageā„¢ as adhesive apply the crushed glass glitter, mica and color fragments anywhere you desire.  Heat pice of organza ribbon carefully with heat gun and allow to slightly curl.  Stick into the book board base using stick pins.  Using Decou-pageā„¢ add small watch pieces.  Frame your piece or use it for a book cover.
