After my first entry for the current AAA Cards Challenge I just had to come back with another. Its so much fun turning stamp images into something else and I tell you, this particular stamp has been extra fabulous with her different personalities of late:
Doesn't the Plant Lady stamp from Ellen Hutson make the most amazing Pennywise the Clown???? It took a bit of fiddling with only stamping part of the image and then some drawing by me, which I'm not too good at but I think it turned out pretty good!!
I started by stamping the lady image on some white CS. I only inked up to where her hair met the bottom of the hat, which required a fit of wiping to remove the ink from those areas sometimes. I was then able to grab a fine point pen and draw in the rest of her head and all that fabulous red hair (which I coloured with a red marker). The original Pennywise has quite a few ruffles around his neck but I decided to do only one as my art skills are seriously lacking.
Looking at pictures of Pennywise I realised he was wearing a yellow suit with red pom poms (similar to Ronald McDonald) under a multi coloured jacket. So I decided to go with the simple option and coloured the outfit with a yellow pencil. With the fine pen I created a much larger mouth with sharp teeth, evil eyebrows and bigger, scarier eyes. For the pom poms down the front and his nose, I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in White and coloured them with a red marker when they were dry.
Using a mini-blending tool I created a grey background with Mama Elephant 'Smoke' ink. I wanted to show him popping out of a hole, so I used an oval die from Studio Katia with some black CS, cut a slit through the middle with a craft knife and then put on foam tape. I fussy cut him out and adhered him thru the slit, with foam tape under his body for support. The balloon (from Whimsy Stamps 'Happy Everything') was stamped twice with red ink and then fussy cut out, creating a string from the CS itself. This was put on foam tape as well behind his hand. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches 'Chubby Chums' and I glued on a few half-beads in black for extra embellishment.
Can't wait to hear your thoughts on this one???!!
I'm also going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is:
