this ought to be the last of my whirlwind of posts until next week, it's the first Friday of a new month, which means it's time for a new challenge over at The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenges!! Woohoo!! Where we get together once a month and present you with fun challenges to help encourage you to get those critter stamps inked or printed and play along for the chance at some fabulous prizes!! This month, the challenge is to use multiple images, with the added twist of making your project SPOOKTACULAR!!! With Halloween just around the bend, this month is a simple time to challenge you all to use multiple images on your projects, a pumpkin, a spider, a bat, a spooky sentiment in addition to your animal or critter focal point and there ya go, you're in!!
We also have a few of our teamies who are celebrating their birthdays this week, the amazing Sue's birthday is today and our darling Zoe is having a full-on birthday week, her birthday was a little earlier on in the week, HAPPY BIRTHDAY LADIES!!!
With harvest time in full swing here in the Plains, this Autumnal themed wall hanging started evolving. I've used a combination of images: Fall Fun Kitty by Whipper Snapper, Squirrels Little Acorn by MelJen, get yours HERE at Whimsy Stamps, Pumpkin from the Going Batty Digi set by Heather Rolin, it can be found HERE at Tickled Pink Stamps, TPS is sponsoring with the digi stamp set of the winners choice, by the way, and the background stamp is called Old Oak Tree and you can find it HERE at Make It Crafty, Zoe, fellow fuzzy gal and owner of MIC is sponsoring us this month as well, and indulged the Design Team with the use of her stores digi designs, and let me tell you, they are gorgeous!!! Thank you so much for your sponsorships Zoe and Kellie, we truly appreciate it!!
I cropped my oak tree image and printed at a custom length and width to try and get the right proportion for the other images, I have coloured the tree with pencils and then distressed to create a shadow with weathered wood. The other images were coloured with distress inks and popped up with foam mounts.
I secured my ribbon by knotting it (hey, going for that country bumpkin look after all) through the front side of the grommets that were added, all punches used are by Martha Stewart, doily, oak leaf and rose leaf, and that gorgeous paper is by Pink Paislee.
I hope that you animal lovers out there will head on over to The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenges and check it out!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting!!
