Home is where the ART is...

Yep another awesome challenge at The Greeting Farm blog just click this link for rules ... any how this is my entry. I really had a lot of fun making this really brought a smile to my face...I am pleased with the outcome totally....thanks for looking...
I altered 80's Anya by making a smock and beret for her. Then I added some paint to both her face and smock one never walks away from creating art clean. I also made a paint brush and palette. I then printed The Greeting Farm logo and put around an old paint tube made it dirty for effect ...I splattered paint on the frame and background adhered a mouse, cat, and hand painted framed landscape in the background. Thank you for stopping by and by the way I must altering stamps has opened a whole new bit of creating for me and I love it... your stamps go even further now with a little imagination....yay....

Catwoman Reeta an altered TGF Stamp for Halloween

Here she is the cat's meow I might add...I wanted to make a Halloween card for a friend and I am trying my hand at altering stamps. What a great way to take already wonderful stamps and make them even more interesting. This is fun and it really gets your creative juices flowing.
I altered The Greeting Farm stamp Wild Sprouts Rita for this. She already has the kitty with her so it was easy to see her as a cat. I changed her hair and omitted the bow in it. Added some felt kitty ears and a tail, stitched on some whiskers and added a cute kitty nose. I changed the look of her clothes with copics and then placed her on a pumpkin cuttlebug embossed background. Added some stickles, ink, and ribbon. Added the Martha stewart spiderweb punches, the pumpkin and the graveyard boarder and there you have it. Happy Halloween everyone.

Cool Yule! altered TGF Skater Ian.

Made a new Christmas card trying to learn to alter images from The Greeting farm to create

a little bit different of a character. I thought I would give Skater Ian a new look from skater to snowboarder which in Alberta is a normal transition for the skater boys....I used Martha Stewart snow glitter, stampin up stamp for the tree and some ribbon for the laser ones.

For Skater Ian I just omitted the wheels, added some hand drawn mitts and made his two piece outfit a one piece snow suit. Coloured him copics and put him on hill...spent a bit of time coming up with a sentiment and then added some fun patterned paper on the side for interest.

Thank you for looking.
