So, here it is...my Challenge of 1's card. 1 image, check. 1 sentiment, check. 1 layer, check. 1 embellishment, check. This one fits the bill.
As some of you may remember, this is one of my most favorite Cooper's out there, Beach Bum! (Altho I may have a new favorite soon!!) I love his chunky little belly, especially now since my little guy's belly is even BIGGER. I stamped him with basic black craft ink onto a fabrianno card...then let him dry for a while. I colored him wtih prismacolor pencils, OMS and blending stumps...but must say the craft ink didn't hold up to the OMS too well. Oh well, guess I better stick to my Palette or Memento inks for them. I also added a little "glow" around our little guy here, so it looks like he really is in the sun! I just went around it with my barely banana marker, then used my aquapainter to soften the edges of the line a little. Almost like having Copics! LOL!!
I can't wait until Friday, when I can share with you all a prettie peek of the new stamps we're releasing on Sunday. I am SOOO in love with one of our newest ones...you'll know why immediately. The best thing was my mom actually used one of the phrases when talking to her on the phone this last week...that's how perfect this set is for me...and I know you all will love it too!
In case you've forgotten...our Stamping in your Jammies night is Sunday, March 1st starting at 5pm PST (8pm EST) and will include all kinds of fun like hourly challenges, prizes, and of course, new stamps! And...you have until Saturday (2/28) at 5pm PST to submit your card for the Cutie Pie contest to win all of this month's releases. Just be sure to upload it to the Pretties Gallery to be considered, and good luck!
