I am combining 2 challenges today. One for Stenciling and the other with the Ah Nuts! theme. You don't see me in the CAS gallery that often because I am just too darned messy. I really tried to go simple, using a real walnut shell to stamp with (brown circle shape) on a printed piece of scrapbook paper. I quickly made a hot mess on my gel plate including a now unrecognizable leaf/thank you stamp (Black squares). Only way to save it was to make it into a pumpkin, so I used the pattern in my SNC machine. That part was simple. I made a very shiny smile on glossy paper with alcohol inks and used the lift it ink and a leaf stencil. It's there, albeit very faint. I always imagined this vine stamp as a smile and it made for a kooky looking guy hence the mismatched eyeballs. I used Distress Oxide on the EF before cranking it and it gave me a nice two-toned color effect. Part of the Ah Nuts theme, besides the walnut shell, is that I have to wait until next year to send it!
