|Can you guess who is hiding in the pumpkin?|
The other day I saw a clever New Year's greeting card by Beatrix Potter. She drew a coconut in which little mice were hiding. I was immediately inspired to create a Halloween variation. I've been a Potter's fan since I was a little child and I still admire her original stories and illustration. My favorite is The Tale of Samuel Whiskers or the Roly-Poly pudding. :) I forgot to take a photo of her card in the daytime, so I'll add it tomorrow.
Anyway, here is my Halloween card. I used orange cardboard and felt in green, orange, and light brown. First, I cut out a card in the shape of a pumpkin. Then I cut the orange felt in two corresponding shapes for the upper and the bottom part, which I glued on the card with a regular glue for paper. I used green felt for the stalk and brown felt for the little animal in the pumpkin, which I drew with a permanent marker.
|It's a sleeping dormouse!|
The little dormouse wanted to wish you happy Halloween, but he fell asleep while I was taking photos. ;)
Do you have any plans for October the 31st? I hope to find some time for a gothic horror or two. :)
