"Feature a Creature"

Hi there!  I've had some fun with this one!!! Using one of Sheena Douglass's Fields of Gold stamp set.  I've firstly stamped the scarecrow image and then painted over him with drawing gum (to mask the stamped image underneath).  I them used distress ink for the sky with some "splodges" of white on a smoothie for the clouds.  Hills were added using torn paper and distress ink. I then rubbed off the drawing gum to reveal a nice clean white scarecrow which I have coloured in using distress inks with water and a paint brush.  Stamped foliage at the bottom in different colours and some trees at the back of the hills (simply masking off the hills with the torn paper again as I went).  It's a die cut fence again from Sheena douglass thats stuck on the very front to look like a nice authentic field fence with some dimension and some stamped flowers to give that country feel to it!  The creatures on this card are the crows (not sure if the scarecrow is scaring them off or making friends with them!!!!!!??????)

Hope you like it, rather made me smile!

I'd like to enter this card in the Stamping Sensations Challenge for June 2016

  2. This is great, Leanne! I love the scarecrow scene, and the gorgeous sunflowers. The way you've done the clouds is very effective. The scene reminds me of the poem "The Scarecrow" By Walter De La Mare, which I had to learn off by heart at primary school and can still remember over 50 years later! Thanks for sharing your lovely card with us at Stamping Sensations.
