Art With Heart - Dr Whoot and his Tardis

Hello Everyone

I am still on my blog break, this is a scheduled Design Team post for Eileen Hull's Art With Heart where the challenge this month is Favourite Fall Things.  One lucky winner will receive Eileen's Vintage Camper die from her new Vintage Travel range of dies!
When I think of Fall/Autumn I generally think of Halloween, autumn leaves and harvest time, but it is also the time when some of my favourite TV programmes start - like Downton Abbey, Strictly and so on.  It is also the new season for Dr Who (who I admit I have not watched in a while).  My favourite Dr Who character was Tom Baker, a rather colourful Dr Who with very distinctive eyes.....

I have been wanting to used Eileen's Artist Trading Block die to make a Tardis for some time and along with my current love, the Bird Crazy and Accessories stamps from Tim Holtz, I created Dr Whoot and his Tardis...

I cut out all of the elements first and stacked two ATB's on top of one another (I used the middle one from Eileen's ATB die 658984).  I measured, drew and cut out the four pairs of doors with a craft knife and then made a plinth for the bottom and two for the top.

I painted all of the elements with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Paint in Ultramarine Blue.
I added some white card behind the top windows and then cut and painted some strips for the sides of the Tardis.
Once assembled, I added a small Tim Holtz Idea-ology bottle for the light at the top and added a sign to the front door.
I stamped the Bird Crazy 'owl' bird and used Tim's thinlit dies to cut him out and coloured him with Ground Espresso, Antique Linen, Scattered Straw and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks.  I added a hat from the Accessories stamp set.  The scarf was created with a piece of calico fabric, painted in stripes with Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

I don't know about you but I think there is quite a good likeness between Dr Whoot and Tom Baker's character....or is it my vivid imagination I wonder...

Please be sure to check out Eileen's blog where you will see a wonderful Fall/Autumn creation from my DT buddy Tracy Evans here and from my DT buddy Pam Bray here.  There will be more inspiration from my teamies every Tuesday.  We would love it if you joined in!

As always, thanks for looking, hope to see you soon.  Hugs, Anne xx
