The weekend is here again!
This time last Saturday I was hanging with my girls and laughing until my tummy hurt. I can't wait for the next one :)
For a minute it seemed like I had left my mojo at the retreat. Then I realized I was trying to use some stamps and techniques that didn't lend itself to my style. Silly girl, stick to what you love.
What do I love? You already know. It's another (pulls out microphone) ONE LAYER CARD, One Layer Card, one layer card, one layer card . . . and the crowd goes wild. Or at least the crowd in my head does. It could be crickets out here. I guess we'll see eh? ;)
Paper Smooches is doing it's Anything Goes challenge this week.
I really wanted to do something Easterish. Easter like? Something to do with Easter. You know what I'm saying. But I don't have any of their Religious sets. I really need to pick some up. Their Religious Sampler set is fabulous.
Anyway, I'm a cheapskate so I work with what I've got. I used an older stamp, so old in fact Kim doesn't even sell it anymore, called Party Pals.
The original stamp has a cute kitty to the left of the bunny but kitties aren't for Easter so I had to mask it off. Sorry kitty, some other day. I left the balloon in because I thought it was super cute but now I'm wondering if it made the card look to much birthday and not enough Easter. What do you think?
I masked some more to add the second balloon. For the jelly beans I used an eye from Spookalicious. Apparently I like using the eyes from this set to make things. I made butterflies with another eye here. So, yeah, eyeballs, that 's my niche. Awesome.
After everything was colored with copics and my detailing was done I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat set it with Colorbox Grape embossing powder. The jelly beans got a dose of glossy accents and I was done.
I have another Easter card to share tomorrow. It has a bathtub in it. Nothing says Easter like bathtubs right? You'll see what I'm talking about :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Holy Saturday!
