Orange and Black - SCD

It's Dawn's colour choice of Orange and Black this week over at SCD and it kick started me into making some extra elements to complete a wall hanging I started last year around this time!! Thanks Dawn :)
So what did I make?... I made a fact I made two moo's!

Dragged DI wild honey around the edge and stippled DI rusty hinge in the centre
...stamped the Inkadinkadoo eyes in Archival black then masked them
...the stamped bit that looks like animal print I got really excited about (sad or what! LOL) it is a Prima alphabet stamp and I thought it would just look cool as a background but when I'd done it it looked like this! Yeh!
....dragged tea dye and rusty hinge around the tattered edges
...added glossy accents to the eyes and Studio G letters finished it off
Those words will always remind me of Pip....he was a great one for remembering one liners from films and using them constantly in an everyday context :)
This one is from The Devil Rides Out

The second moo uses the same colour ink
...the sentiment is my own acrylic stamp
...the background feather image that looks a bit like flames is a Lawrence Lewellyn-Bowen stamp from Trimcraft that I was lucky to win as part of my Craft Stamper of the Year prize :)

Not long now and my year will be up and someone new will be Stamper of the Year
....have you entered? Good luck if you have :)
I have not got round to finishing the hangy piece yet but will try to do that and post it in the next couple of days.
Don't forget you can make anything for SCD this week as long as you use the colour scheme....does not have to be Hallowe'en...although the combo is ideal ;)
Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux


  1. Those eyes remind me of Carl Fogerty -'Foggy' - the World Superbike Champion, now retired, from my neck of the woods, up here in the North, well, Mellor, Blackburn to be precise. These colours are just delicious and you have done your usual amazing magic with them.
    Luv Joanne xx
