The woodgrain paper that the scarecrow is stamped on reminds me of straw or a rattan place mat. I colored very heavily with Prismacolor Pencils and then went back with a soft eraser and used it to blend and remove color for shading. I used a sketch from Eat, Sleep, Stamp for my design. I cut the sentiment in half to make it work for the sketch & finished with some just packaging twine. When I unravel the ends of the twine, it reminds me of the texture of straw, which seemed perfect for the Scarecrow.
