*Wink Wink Ink* FUN w/ DT Call & Stamp, Scrap, & Doodle Saturday Challege

Hope you are all having an enjoyable Sunday.  This is my 2nd post for today and probably my last for today!!    I've had a couple of ideas floating around in my head to create using my Wink Wink Ink images so I got busy and now would like to share them with you!!   Have you stopped over to Wink Wink Ink yet??   It's a brand new digi shoppe ... Melanie Montes de Oca is the owner, artist and her images are fantastic!!.
A few nights ago (while trying to fall asleep) the thought came to me ... why not turn this adorable image called "A Little Behind" into an interactive card and name it "Pin the Tail on the Pony".    I've made my creation in A-2 card form, but since this is a DIGI, you could certainly print it out much larger and create your own Party Game ... how much fun is that!!

(Here is a little peek at the inside of my card.)  The base card is Very Vanilla cardstock and the designer paper is from the DCWV Rustic 12x12 pack.  I've used the Martha Stewart picket fence border punch for my sentiment panel ... inked the top edge using Ranger vintage photo distress ink and hand wrote the sentiment.   Here is a listing of all items used on this card:
Stamps:  WinkWinkInk digital image
Papers:  very vanilla, bayou blue, DCWV Rustic dp
Inks:  Ranger vintage photo distress ink
Accessories:  Prisma pencils/gamsol, Prismacolor markers, Martha Stewart picket fence border punch, sponge, Creative Memories number stickers & corner rounder, Fiskars swivel craft knife, ZIG brown marker (for handwritten sentiment)
Another fun creation I came up with uses the Wink Wink Ink image called "Free Stamp" ... yes, Melanie has offered this adorable image FREE for you to create with (see them all HERE in her store).  Remember, when you purchase Melanie's images, you get THREE images ... (1) black/white for you to color (2) a transparent image and (3) a PRECOLORED image ... which happens to be the one I've used on this creation.  I'm not a cat lover but isn't she adorable ... gotta love those eyes!!  (click on the image for a larger view)

Again, I have used Martha Stewart's picket fence but this time I've added flowers (Repeat Impressions stamp) which I colored using Prismacolor markers and positions this sweet kitty in the front.  You can't tell by this head on photo, but I have used a pop dot behind her head to give her a little dimension off the page.  My background paper is from a DCWV 12x12 pack and was given to me by my friend Terri (Terri's Cards N' More) when we got together last week to Play!  Thanks Terri!!!    This image comes with the envelope BLANK ... so here I've added a sweet Valentine Heart Sticker from the Crafty Secrets Valentine's Love sticker sheet which says "Sweetie".   And how about this "candy heart" ... looks good enough to eat doesn't it!!  It comes from a company called Kelley Designs Embellishments (sorry, couldn't find a link online) and I can't even tell you where I picked them up ... I just know I thought they were cute!!

**This week's challenge over at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday is "OPEN" so I think I'll pop these over there to share.  The SSDS blog is another fun place to be ... check 'em out!**

THANKS SO MUCH for the visit!  I know you are busy and I do appreciate you taking the time to stop by!!   When you get a moment ... please stop by Wink Wink Ink and check out these cute images ... Melanie also has out a Design Team Call!  You can see all the info HERE on her blog and it runs through February 20th ... so you still have time!!  

Please stop by tomorrow when I'll have some exciting news to share with you!!  Until then ... stay warm ... stay safe and Happy Stamping!!
