Mr Magoo has nothing on you!

This one is for all the myopic crafters and artists out there - yep, I have the eyesight of a mole without my trusty contacts or specs!  And having just had my annual visit to the opticians today (no prescription change, yeay) I thought this goofy little guy was rather appropriate.

As is my thing these days, I have opted for the "no-lines colouring" technique.  This stamp is quite small and delicate and I felt dark lines would have overpowered the image too much.  I also kept the background very subtle, opting for pale colours and using a squiggly/dot pattern so the main focus is on Mr Turtle whilst he tries to impress the hamburger with his awesome chat up lines!!!

Glasses: B0000, C00

Chip bag: B0000, C00, C0, C1, C2, C4, V20, YR30
Fries: E30, E40, E42, E44, E50, E51, E53, YR30, W6
Background: W00, W0, W1, W2, W4, BG0000, YR30

Size of card: 3.5inch/ 8.8cm square

*** Oh my, so many of you are asking about this little turtle and where you can buy him!  Now please be aware, I bought this wooden stamp many years ago from a store in the UK that has since closed.  I have sent Peddlers Pack an email today asking as to whether they still make this stamp and will post their response on this blog as soon as I hear from them!

UPDATE 29/7 
Sadly, Peddlers Pack have never responded to either my email or FB message.  Thankfully however, I have just been told by one of my readers that Peddlers Pack do in fact still make the stamp!  It would appear you need to call them directly and speak to the owner of the store to get it.

Thanks for visiting today, I hope this little guy made you smile - 'cause that's what art should do, right?
