MOON FEAST

This weeks challenge on THE STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS challenge site is WINGS, WINGS, WINGS. I have been thinking what I could do for this and finally it hit me today so here is my entry!


This is worked on an old book cover. I stuck a book page onto the cover and then sprayed it with my new favourite thing.......an opaque proper white spray! It is a Memories Mist (available from The Stamp Attic, not on the web site but call if interested!) spray called Whipped Cream. Once dry I stamped the HEADS over it and added the MUSHROOM images and other bits and pieces.
OK, OK so I know that pumpkins don't have wings normally but what the heck!!
And yes that is a zip along the bottom!!
I just LOVE this heads stamp!


My pumpkins were made of Plaster of Paris poured into a chocolate mould. Once dry they were painted.

While I was working on this piece I also prepped a journal page ready for future use cos I know something you might not.........there are NEW STAMPOTIQUE IMAGEScoming soon..........they are now available for PRE_ORDER HERE IN THE UK

OMG you've done it again........fantastic work. I love your pumpkins with wings and I love how you made them too. That white spray is brilliant, very smooth with a sort of foggy edge, perfect for those 'heads'. Your attention to detail is wonderful and I love love love it!

What an inspiring piece, Sue.

I am impressed by all the unusual elements, the zip and using plaster of Paris, etc.

..you can put wings on anything...where would pumpkins go if they could fly?

Love the card! I am taken with TEXT and most any FONT, so I like the idea very much of stamping onto a text page....very nicely done. Thanks, Sue!
