Over on UKStampers Gail challenged us to do something with a potato. I don't mean eat; something arty! Well there were some very arty carvings done so I went a whole lot simpler and cut mine into a leaf shape, some flowers and some potato shapes.
I decided to use them for a page in my Art Journal to celebrate the potato! I did the background with pastels and used Sharpie pen for the stalk and added the stamped leaves and flowes.

The roots were a combination of gel pen and felt pen (pinched from the children) with the potao stamped randomly over.
The centre of the flower was a blob of acrylic paint added with a toothpick and it was finished with some "interesting facts" from Wikipedia about the potato. Who needs rubber stamps!
