January New Release with Joy Clair Day 1 ~ Rise and Shine!

Hi guys!!!
So happy to show you my first project using the fabulous Joy Clair stamps.
This is from the  Joy Clair January release, 13 sets and all amazing!!!

It is Rise and Shine and you will be seeing this set again. We have chickens
 and would make great embellishments for the scrapbook page but also for cards!!

The background was created using Distress Oxide ink, watered down and
 dragging the card base through the different colors of ink.  It is a great way to
 create a multi color background for a card.

This technique worked so well for the Rooster, giving him all kinds of colors.

The banner, dividing the card, was created using the Misti.  Makes it easy to keep 
the sentiment lined up and straight while stamps several in a row.

Which one is your favorite? I can’t even pick one because I honestly LOVE them all!  
We will be picking one winner for each day of the release – a total of four lucky commentators!
