I am back today with my Guest designer project for AALL & Create. I was challenged to use Olga Heldwein's Spooks stamp (AALL & Create #136) and do something completely different with it.
After much head scratching I had a light bulb moment and saw a sheep ... in the pumpkin... so I made a Valentine card.
To create the card I used the following:
Stencil #49 (Olga), Stamp #33 (Tracy Evans) and Stamp #136 (Olga)
I stamped the pumpkin twice, made hand drawn heads (and later some curly top knots), added some hand drawn legs and simply doodled some 'wool' onto the bodies.
The sky was created using Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass. I put the stencil over the sky and used a baby wipe to wipe away some of the colour. The heart was stamped using Stamp #33 and the heart was coloured in with a red marker. The small hearts were hand drawn and also coloured with the red marker. The letters are by Tim Holtz.
The sheep were grounded using Peeled Paint Distress Ink and a stamp from set #33.
I may not look at all my stamps in a different way in future but it was an interesting challenge and one I really enjoyed and, on the plus side, I have DH's Valentine card made early!
Thanks so much for your visit, I hope to see you again soon.
Hugs, Anne xx
