Well this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge has a transportation theme. Well the wheels started turning... (no pun intended). A chance to mix my favorite little angel stamps, my Magnolias with my love of donkeys. Ok yes I know this image is Mules...I love them too as they are part donkey! The biggest struggle was size and how to position them. I then came up with this - I placed sitting Edwin on a fence in front of the pair of hitched up Mules. This stamp is by Wildlife Enterprises. If you like real life art stamps check them out! I am so happy with the how it came out! I used scrap papers on the green Bazzill card stock. The fence is a background stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms stamps that I cut apart. I colored Edwin with my copics and highlighted with my white gel pen and of course stickled wings. I also lightly colored in portions of the Mules image and the fence. The bottom of the card is stamped with a Rubber Stamps Tapestry Peg stamp then added prima flowers! The Howdy is from Cat's Pajamas Stamps. Now did this card bring together a lot of companies or what!
I also got the Tilda and Friends ATC challenge done, and I am so happy I bid on this chair stamp on ebay! This weeks challenge was to use checks. Ok, I love that, gingham is a favorite of mine, and I do have some new stamps to choose from. (see yesterday's post) Then I look over to the side of my desk and sitting there is a chair stamp that I won on ebay a couple of weeks ago. I purchased it for one reason only...... it looked like it was the perfect size to sit a Magnolia Angel into. And guess what - IT IS! How cute is that! I sat Baby Edwin into the comfy chair, and it reminds me of those silly toddler chairs that you can buy to match your living room furniture and your child can be have his or her own recliner to sit for hours in front of the television. Oh the world we live in! But it is cute... I stamped this one on a cream piece of card stock with my Brilliance Coffee Bean Ink, and I think it has a tweed look to it. Edwin was colored with my copics and his jumpsuit is paper pieced with a scrap piece of Daisy D's paper. I highlighted the edges of the same check paper as the background. Too funny huh!
Well gotta get busy. Lots of errands to get done, then I have to get home and get my stuff together because this is my crop weekend! Late nights, Long days of scrappin', and laughter with some friends! Yee Haw! Hope you have fun plans for the weekend too!
