Look Ma, NO sewing! Can you believe it? It has become one of my favorite embellishments, but my hubby gets upset when I do it during his beloved World Series game! LOL! (he watches TV with me in my studio at night) Men and Sports....I have enjoyed watching the Phillies play, though. I like post-season playoffs for most sports. I think there is more on the line, so it is more exciting!
Here is a close-up of my coloring - these little birdies are just, plain adorable! If you look closely at the cherry on top, I applied some Liquid Glass to it to make it shine!
Anywho, I dug deep into my stash and pulled out some Basic Grey Blitzen! (Goin' Old Skool!) I was so in love when this line came out eons ago, that I bought 2 fulls 12 x 12 sets! I still have lots of certain sheets left! Old Olive and Riding Hood Red cardstock goes great with this DP. I used my oval & ribbon tag trio nesties and another Free sentiment! I airbrushed the label with some B91 ink. Here is a close-up of my coloring. I think he turned out pretty cute! To make his fur trim look a little fluffy, I used my Copic colorless blander and used a circular motion to pull up some of the color. I really did not want to use any fluff or bling on a boy card! My 6 yr old would probably set me straight if I did! I did sneak in some stitching, though!
For card #3, I used the LilyRidesPolarBear image.I got the idea for this card from Debbie's (Thinking Inking) post here. I layered some Bo Bunny DP from last year and stitched the hills. (I did it in-between innings, so my hubby could not complain! LOL) I used some Ocean Tides and Kraft cardstock to accompany this DP. Isn't the tag cute? Of course, it is another one of those Free sentiments! I sponged some Ocean Tides ink around the edges and added some Ocean Twill ribbon too.
Here is a close-up of Lily. I colored the image with Copics and cut it out. I added some glitter to all of her fur trim to make it shimmery - I just love some sort of bling or shimmer on all of my cards!
Gotta get some stuff done! I am so glad the weekend is almost here! Sunday is my birthday (30-something) and my parents are coming over on Saturday night for dinner. My Mom is cooking steak au poivre - one of my favs! Med-Rare and with some mushrooms in the sauce of course! Yum-O! I am hungry just thinking about it! Well, I will let ya chew on that morsel!
