I dare you not to smile after reading this card...

Ok, now common tell me you didn't chuckle when you read this card! I think it is hysterical. Hubby just rolls his eyes! This card was made with the sketch from this weeks Ismaki Challenge Blog, a sketch by Claudia. Great sketch Claudia, you can see more of her work on her blog Pretty Pressings!

The stamps used are from Whipper Snapper Designs, they really do make some wonderful stamps with some great artist! The "Hare" image is colored in with my Copic Markers, highlighted with Sakura Glaze pens and then the bubbles layered with Diamond Glaze to give the wet appearance. I tried to photo this up close so you can see it, really shines in real life! The base is Bazzill, and the pattern paper is Fancy Pants Sweet Pea. I love two sided pattern papers, they are usually the same shades of colors and work so well together with out cutting into multiple sheets of papers. I matted each block with a lemon yellow green scrap, then scraps from the base card stock. I doodled the edges of everything. It seemed to need something else on my card so I found these shell buttons in my box, I tied the same color of green embroidery thread thru them and then glue dotted them down. The metal dots near the sentiment are Colorbox metal adhesive dots. I do hope that this card made you smile.






Now I also have to point out my new Watermark.... Sara, the brilliant person that did my blog, made my watermark too! And if you don't recognize it, that is Raffie - my smiling donkey! I love it, but I do love my Raffie.....

Have a great Tuesday!
