How adorable is this "Little Stinker" image from *Wink *Wink Ink!! I have used the PRE-COLORED image you receive when you purchase any of Melanie's stamp sets. You get a Black/White, a Transparent & a Pre-Colored image with every set! I also chose to use the "Out of the Box with Nestabilities" technique ... that is how the little skunks tail is outside the circles. This is a fun technique! I first saw it done over on GinaK's StampTV site but last week SCS came out with the tutorial I have linked for you.
(click on ANY image for a larger view)This card fits three different challenges. Today's MIDNIGHT MADNESS SKETCH CHALLENGE, the CCEE CHALLENGE to make a Get Well card and the STAMP SOMETHING CHALLENGE to use Layers.
I chose to use the CAS sketch this week ... it just fit better with what I was trying to accomplish and I've given you a little sneak peek at the inside. Cute huh!!!
Here is the recipe for this creation:
Stamps: *Wink *Wink Ink digi, AMuse, Inkadinkado
Papers: Bo Bunny dp, Basic Black, Whisper White, Taken with Teal
Inks: Versafine black
Accessories: Nestabilities classic & scallop circles, White Gelly Roll pen, Kaiser flowers, Basic Grey brad, Fiskars swivel craft knife, Offray black satin ribbon
I'm sure this little cutie will put a smile on the face of anyone who is a little down in the dumps or dealing with a stomach virus (like so many are right now!) or whatever is ailing them at the time. Speaking of that ...
I would like to ask you to keep a local crafting friend of mine in your prayers today! Her name is Mary Frances Cornell and she was just diagnosed with Leukemia! She a very sweet, giving lady and she could certainly use all the help we can give her to help fight this battle. She has been in the hospital for the past week and it looks like she might be there for another 3-4 weeks. She's in isolation so is not allowed visitors but if you'd like to send her a card, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get the address to you!! Thanks for your prayers ... they are very appreciated!!
Well ... it's past lunch time (haven't eaten yet ... too busy crafting, teehee) and I really need to get outdoors so I'd best get off my 'puter and get my work done!! Happy Day to you!
