Bracken and Fern Cards

Hi everyone,
Two more cards featuring Bracken & Fern These are once again rough cards. The image sizes are way off what i want them. But i was eager to see how they come out. The aim of these roughs will be to make a stamp or two in the end, But thats a little way off yet
First off a congratulations
card for university students.
The gown and the hat where fun to drawn
I drew them separatly and used a light box to cloth the character.
I think i got the expression ok on this one and that there is enough movment within the drawing.
Other materials used Red & black card stock, Netsibilities dies. My imaginations, Silver pens.
Second is a congratulations
on passing your driving test card with one of the badgers tearing up the L plate.
I think the ears are a bit big so might change this one. I struggle with perspective and had to break the drawing down quite a bit.
I used card stock, Nestibilities, Pro markers, and stickers.
Many thanks for popping by,
Cheers take care
and happy crafting.

Stamp making questions

Hi everyone,
I hope you are well.

Well the drawing of smugger the rabbit has been done and sent to his owner. So now i'm cleanning up bits and such i have another 8 bookmarks to complete which i am working on and off of. I also want to make another Polymore stamp with Fern & Braken. I am working on rough sketches so hope to be able to show you some ideas later on what they might look like. The hardest part is finding somthing no one has yet done.

I also need to find someone to make some. The company i used for the first one was very expensive so i need to find someone who can do a good job for a fair price, I might look to america.
Once i have things going then i plan to use some them in blogg cadies and such.

Anyway here's one of the first ideas.

The image has a lot of faults with it. (the mouth shape, pose colouring) Blame my brother for that he keeps on making loud noises and distracting me.

This is the 6th version of the image i have tried tonight. I am getting frustrated now so will quit tonight.
So i'm going to do the true version at work tommorow I will find an unused room and hide away and concentrate.

I could do with feedback on this image good and bad.
This image once cleaned andsorted will be made in to a stamp like my last one.

In The real version on the card the words would be bigger and more gold borders and gem stones used, but as it is a rough layout i have not added all of those things.

The pens ran baddly so there are alot of white bits that ar't white.

till then take care and happy crafting.
