Thanks all, for the nice compliments!
Battenberg I'm glad you like it!
Here are some pics I took before sending.

I totally love the stamp set myself. Couldn't stop stamping.
The two without wood are reversible so you have more tree variation and it won't get so repeating.

a testtree! And that's why the stamps are blue  Roll Eyes couldn't get the dmn ink off.

It's a dream tree. You hang your dreams in the tree and your dreams will blossom.
Well, that's the idea anyway.

I received an awedome parcel from Echo_brook during the week Tongue

Firstly the group shot - an Owlasaur - not sure it's histrorically acurate - but this is what emerged!

After wranggling with the Owlasaur for a short while I was able to break off some of the more threatening parts
teeth, spikes, eyes and ears!

I found the teeth and toe talons were actually nice earrings, and the tail spikes were clay leaves. The eyes turned out to be clay dragonflies!

Next I was albe to pull off the end of it's tail -which became a lovely necklace - (so cute and wire tree perfect!)

Next i pried off the feet and the stump of the tail:

The feet were thrift store found ceramic mugs Tongue
and the tail stump a cute tin with palm fronds.
Above is the protective wrapping the owlasaur was in-before it jumped out of teh box!

Then the head came off!!! and the gigantic wings!

Echo created a wood grain like kniited (Huh) scarf and beanie for me -which is handy as we're going into winter!
and they are each applicaed with oak leaves and acorns!

Lastly I was able to tackle the main part of the Beastie:
The Body!!!

Isn't it beautiful!!!

She hand embroidered the tree on - it has such beautiful texture adn i LOVE it!!!
Close up of the Beasties belly:

It's lilke the tree has tenticles adn little lighter purple suckers Tongue

Thankyou so much Echo I love everything. There was no need to dream up sucha  scary beastie -I love every part Tongue

ps - Was at the Folk Festival here last weekend and I spied a huge puppet that i thought i would share with you:

He was interesting to converse with -he had a really rough barky textured voice   Grin

Listening to the wind bustle past...and watching Muppet (the bearded dragon) sleep. This is lovely!
