What's new?

The other challenge I came up with was one I lived to regret – use your stamps in a different way to normal. So turn one image into another.

This was an idea I saw on a blog ages ago and had a go at but never got round to turning into a card. So I had another go.

It’s very simple – you just stamp the owl from Animal Stories, draw a freehand tail and then add some whiskers. I drew the eyes nose and mouth, too... and a doodle line for the cat to sit on. I hate my handwriting – years of shorthand followed by typing everything have ruined it – but I thought handwriting was the best style for this card, with its doodled whiskers and doodling around the black layer.
