Stamper's OCD

Good morning! Be sure to scroll down to yesterday's post if you would like a chance at winning this week's candy. :)
So my card today is for the Farm Fresh No Frills challenge over at The Greeting Farm. Anyone doing a double-take on the two Edwards? I sure did a few weeks ago when I was cruising through the galleria and noticed one of the cards had an Edward with hair pointing the opposite direction from the Edward stamp I had. This intrigued me... you see, I was lucky enough to win my Edward stamp just before its release, so I wondered if that first batch of stamps was made with hair pointing to the right while following re-orders the image got flipped and his hair started going to the left? This is where my OCD comes into play... how could I not order one just to see if I was right? So I ordered and my suspicions were confirmed... there are two versions of Edward out there! Ahhhhhh, now I feel like my Sprout collection is complete once again. This compulsion could start to rival my paper collecting... sick I tell ya, sick... ;)
No regrets though because as you can see now I have that many more possibilities for altering LOL! Let's see... I changed Hugh's eyes by wiping the ink off his original ones and using my light box to trace Edwards eyes onto him. Then I used one of the Edward heads with a Hugh body that I swiped off the bandanna and patch on the jeans. Now I have three individual looking little friends... gotta love it. :)

Angie said...

So THAT'S how you did it! I wondered about that when I saw your card in the galleria. I just ordered another Edward for my birthday blog candy, but if his hair is the opposite way from the one I already have then I will keep him! LOL!
