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.

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
Thank you for the comment, and Thank you for the information about MOOs. xDelete
Oh, yes, I like this very much, the towers picture is wonderful and using this technique gives it depth. I also like the colours you have used.ReplyDelete
