Autumnal sales opportunity!

Also known as PUMPKINS FOR SALE!!

 I have been working on this piece of silliness for a few days now and finally got it finished yesterday. It started life as a box that something or other came in, I cut the side out, re-glued the sides where they fell apart and then used the side as the base for the pumpkin garden.

 The houses inside are from the PAPERBAG STUDIOS latest
release....DOODLES AND DATERS......they are stamped on one of the 
GRAPHIC 45 steampunk papers then the roofs stamped onto 7GYPSIES PADDINGTON clock paper.

 The STAMPOTIQUE pumpkins are also stamped onto the steampunk papers and then cut out with an extra tag left at the bottom. Cut slits in the base and pushed the tag through the slit so the pumpkins sit up.

 Here is the salesman looking hopeful!!
He is WEASEL with thankyou from STAMPOTIQUE.


Finally, I want to say something more about the digital stamp/image thing. It is strange how you can get so caught up with what something is called! Call them digital STAMPS and those die hard stampers amongst us get bent out of shape over it but call them digital IMAGES and we are fine with it! Lots of us use digital collage sheets without even thinking about it.
So, the reason for this rambling?..........after buying the raven digital image from OCTOPODE FACTORY I discovered that Lily, who is the artist, is only 17 and still at school........how fantastic is that and what a great work ethic for one so young. So I have added a link to her ETSY shop on my side bar to try and support her in some small way.

I do miss you! But i suspect that these wonderful creations are a result of being away from home here meaning you have more time to immerse yourself in the world of 'making'! Love this piece, and those papers are fab on the houses :)
