I have another card for the current Hero Arts April Contest, and I decided to use another one of Shari's sketches. I also decided to go masculine, with a sense of humour! A long, long time ago I bought a few of the "cutsy" stamp sets from Hero Arts and to be honest, I have not used them enough, hardly actually. I think the reason is that I have been looking at life too seriously perhaps, and that then translated into my card making. But now that I am meeting so many different and talented crafters out there, in a sublininal way I think I am pushed to explore more, to loosen up a little, to see the funny side of life from time to time. So here goes....
Paper: Cardstock (PTI); Patterned paper (from my friend Jacqueline)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo DI
Stamps: Hero Arts
Other: Corner Chomper; Bone (my old stash); Spellbinder circle die
I pretty much followed the sketch like a good little girl! It's such a nice sketch anyway. The dog, after being stamped with the Envelope Pattern stamp was cut out and adhered with some pop dots. In retrospect maybe the circle should have been done in a beige colour to match the patterned paper, the white looks very stark even though there is white on the bone embellishment.
I hope you are having a great Saturday. I am going to post another card that I made just for the fun of coloring with my Copics. Then I am off to take my daughter to a birthday party at the gym, she always has such fun there.
