Another Little Moo

Hello Moo-ers.  I have a feeling this is not going to be my last challenge this week, although I have every intention of doing some housework tomorrow. Yeah right.

The challenge with MOO-MANIA this week is to create a MOO using triple stamping.  Now I have been searching my stamp library for anything that fits neatly into the MOO size which is 2.7cm x 7cm and I found this little hamlet stamp featuring a tower which fits just perfectly. (I am still not sure where this size originates or indeed why it is called a Moo, but who cares?)  

Knock on the Door - I Dare You.

My little Moo is made using a collection of tower and castle type buildings.  I love the simplicity of the images and the way I can mask them out to add more towers which gives a seamless image.  I also masked out the buildings so I could stamp some trees in the background.

Once the ink was dry I coloured the image using Pro-Marker pens which give such an even finish. The little door on the main tower has a little door knob too.

That door looks like it is opening...........

 So there we are, another challenge entered.  When will I stop?  NEVER.  

If you visit my blog please be kind enough to leave a comment.  Thank you.

  1. extreaorinary! I love it! WOW!

    You want to know why MOO and why this size?
    I found this format for artists first time about 3 years ago (mostly on netherland art blogs).
    what I know and heard the format comes from the business cards offered to order...
    but I am not really sure
    look here:
