So you want to see a card? LOL
I am now in code red.. this is one of my last "emergency" colored up images - the past week has used up all of my extra cards and emergency fill in cards, hopefully I will have a chance to get caught up this weekend and make a few ahead....
But I do love this new Summer image from Alota Rubber Stamps. Really what I would love to do after a day out side helping Hubby the past few days... whew it is hot? I think we are at day 58 of over 100 degrees in a row here... just nuts! This is "Sprinkler Bugs" I think they are wonderful and reminds me of summer as a kid... now they wouldn't let you do this, water conservation, and water restrictions here are horrible. I think my sister had some sort of flower sprinkler, but hers had things that waved around in the air and shot out water. Me.. just a plain old sprinkler.. oh but one year I did get a slip and slide! Man the bruises we got from that thing!!
My card is a pretty simple one today wanted the image to be the focus... I colored the sky and ground with chalk, then the bugs and details with my Copics... do you love those little flip flops or what? I then high lighted with white gel pen, stickles on the flying bugs wings and then clear dimensional glaze for the water... really looks cool in person.. I tried really hard to get a photo.
The papers... the card stock base is a Bazzil dark green, then the three patterns are all from Papertrey ink. I sewed down everything with my machine... trying to practice my random stitching.. so frustrating! I found a satin ribbon that I think is a Martha Stewart ribbon, that is the same color as the one pattern paper. A pre-made flower from my stash. Then that sentiment - from Cloud 9 - I thought it was just too perfect for this image, it is an epoxy sticker that I put on the green dotted paper and cut out.
So that is it... I hope to have a few minutes today to catch up on blog reading.. I have missed so much this week - Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!
