T is for Totem Pole

Hello.  Welcome.   It's time for another altered playing card for the Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary challenge.  This week we are looking art the letter T.  I decided to use some fun totem pole stamps and combine it Marilynn's technique for faux wood.  



Is this as fun as I think it is?  I used a piece of blue card, stencilled some stars with Blueprint Sketch distress ink and added some white gel pen stitches.  The foreground is a piece of yellow banana paper with Die-versions Southwestern Desert die cut in black.  This is a long thin cut and I have rearranged it quite a bit to make it fit my card and make a scene.  I made my faux wood as per Marilynn's tutorial and stamped and embossed Kadoodle's Totem Pole.  This is actually 4 individual stamps.  I coloured with promarkers.  I stacked up the pieces and popped the final piece on some foam dots.  My printer has died so I had to write my definition, courtesy of the OED.

Thanks for dropping by.  Stay dry and safe.  Hugz
