Meet and One Veg

Hello.  Welcome.  I got this Mr Potato stamp in a VLVS grab bag and looking at their challenge I thought Mr Potato chased by birds might be a laugh.  But when I stamped him I discovered I had an evil version of Mr Potato, so maybe he should be the one to chase the birds

I decided to alter a giant playing card.  I used orange and pink acylic paint and then stencilled dots with white acrylic.   I added some black archival ink using the edge of a stamp and a cotton wool bud.  I wanted to reverse the VLVS flamingo so I stamped it on tissue paper and coloured with sharpies.  Then I glued it to the playing card.  I stamped and embossed VLVS Running Potato and the sentiment on old book paper.  I coloured with sharpies, white gen pen and distress ink.  I edged the sentiment with sharpies.  A googly eye and done!!

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
