2 Cup Mornings
THIS card, I decided to play a bit more with them. I "painted" on the yummy sparkly blue Twinkling H2O onto the woodgrain background and stamped onto some white cardstock. Today I decided to use it for a "spotlight" so I cut it out with my Coluzzle and then sponged around the edges with some Broken China distress ink.
Next, I took some of the Broken China and smooched it onto a stamping block. Using a watercolor brush, I picked up the ink and painted Changito's pajamas and coffee cups. Then I used browns to paint in Changito himself. I added a brown background stamped with the coffee cup using Versamark. Did a bit of faux stitching to add a bit of detail. Finally, I pulled the card together, popping Changito and the sentiment for some added demension! I hope you can see how awesome the woodgrain background is ... all sparkly. You can click on the picture (or right click and go to 'open') to see a larger view.
He turned out so fun and cute I decided to enter him on the Moxie Fab World's Fun and Cute challenge. You should play along too. And if Fun and Cute is not your style, there is also a Clean and Graphic, Shabby and Chic, and Classy and Elegant category. Go and have some fun!!!
