SWF: 'Cherish' Oakley

Back again! I've used the sketch over on SWF with some more stamps from the WoJ Autumn kit. This started out as my CCT card (post below this) as I thought I could make him look more summery but in the end I didn't fight it and just went with the autumn theme, which actually fits the current weather better!
Went a bit mad with the old distress inks . . was supposed to just lightly sponge around the edges but then got carried away and ended up covering all the white background, luckily it matches the dp and I think gives it a more autumnal feel.

Here's a closer shot of cute farmer Oakley sitting on the mushroom. Don't forget, individual stamps from the kit will be released next Mon 24th, along with a few other new ones.

  • Stamps: 'Oakley', the toadstool he's sitting on and the word 'cherish all WoJ stamps. leaves around him are a 99p studio g stamp and the circle sentiment gift off Kathy (but it's Cats Life press stamp if you want to source it yourself)
  • Colouring: Copics on image, sponged distress inks for background
  • Paper: Prima I think
  • Tools: MS fench punch
  • Others: metal charms, pearl gems and green garden twine
That's all for today. Thanks for dropping by.
