Just for FUN!
It doesn't happen too often that I get so excited I feel required, compelled, obligated, desperate to make something with a new acquisition...
It happened yesterday! I got home from the weekend at my parents' and checked the mail. I had a wonderful wonderful package of goodies from my friend in England, LOU! It was really neat to see the different kinds of embellishments she'd sent. Some I've never seen before - so much fun. Also, even though I'm a team member for Funky Fairy - I didn't know there were any actual "rubber" (polymer in this case) stamps! Well, now I know and I could NOT have been more excited.
So, after I got unpacked and the kids settled and the laundry moved around and dinner finished and the kids bathed and in bed... I decided to make a 1 layer card with one of the amazing stamp sets I got. Go shop at the FUNKY FAIRY now and see what kind of awesome goodies I get to work with on their DT.
Anyhow... I masked the inside square and inked around the edges. Then I stamped the car, then I drew in the road with a black pen. I colored the car and grass and road with copics. Then I used some BLINGZ to the flower centers, and a silver gel pen to get that chrome-y look. I used some colorbox fluid chalk pads to sponge the sky and the sun. Then stamped on my sentiment over the top.
Badabing! A cute cute 1 layer card with a fun new goodie!
Enjoy, in SPITE of the fact that it's another Monday (after all, we have them regularly - we should get used to it!)
