New Piece For Sale!

I've started working on some new fall items this last week and I have one finished!

Meet Hamilton. 
He is a one-of-a-kind kind of guy, created by me. I started with making the body, then painting and distressing it. He has been mounted on a wooden spool that has been covered in vintage book paper and stained.
Hamilton's face is all hand sewed on and he has a real dried pumpkin stem.
He is wearing a repurposed scrap of curtain that I grunged up.
Hamilton is holding a small bunch of flowers. He also has on a rusty bell necklace. He is approx. 14" tall.
Hamilton is ready to move in with you!

Check out today's card sketch from Lisa over at Sketch-N-Scrap. This is a fun one that I plan on using again!
I was needing a wedding card and this sketch was perfect. I used two different embossing folders to add some interest to the neutral colored paper.
