Stamp Something Challenge - Embellished Something
I was thinking about working on some cards. I checked my email and found out that Stamp Something's Challenge for this week was to embellish something. I dug into my stash and found these harvest shaped metal decorations that someone gave me. (I thought I would never use them.) The scarecrow is a sample sent to me in a swap, so I don't know who makes it. I colored in the scarecrow with my new Koh-i-noor woodless colour pencils (love them), blended with a paper stump and then chalked the image with Pebbles Pearlescent chalks before I cut it out with postage stamp scissors. I decided to spray the image with Preserve It by Krylon to keep the chalk from rubbing off.
I really liked the way it turned out. To bad I only have enough to make two cards.
