Artful Times Fur and Feathers

At Artful Times the challenge is fur and feathers. I got this cockerel from here a couple of weeks ago cause I thought it looked very grand. This was an ideal time to use it and to make Vic a new notepad so that he doesn't keep writing in mine.

Great samples from Von, Neet and Sam and the other entries so far.

I just made a front cover for a notepad I have had a while and the image was printed onto the cover, the whole front was distressed with Rangers ink, Broken China . I used another little bird stamp along the bottom and some Crafty Emblies shapes to add the letters to spell NOTES.

A bit of rick rack at the top for decoration and that's it folks!
