Working as a Sin City Design Team Member....
So just alittle background was stuck in bed on "bed rest" with a very bad case of Walking Pnemoniadoctor gave me a choice Hospital (Remember: single mom of 3) or Bed Rest. Of course I picked the 2nd option.
So now I have to do a post and all my stuff is downstairs in my craft studio and i'm stuck in bed. So I send me oldest son downstairs and just give me an idea of what I want to make for this blog post and some ideas what to grab - up came a bag with a bunch of stuff. At first I was like - what am I going to do with all this... But what came out - I think i'm going to let him pick from now on...
Would love for you to follow my blog - and love any comments.
Supplies used listed below.
I've had this Donna Downey Stamp but wasn't sure what to do with it. Of course I buy everything of hers but fear always gets me that I'll never do it as good as she does...
So I stamped up the image with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Black Soot onto Gloss paper.
After cutting it out and pulling a green blank card that I got from Michaels
and pulled another stamp by Prima - Julie Netting Mixed Media Stamp I stamped it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain on front and back
My Son pulled out different ribbons I had and twine - after all that was the challenge to use what we hoard.
I used double stick tape to stick the ribbon around the edges. And then used Beacon 3 in 1 Glue to put the stamped image on the card.
I then started to glue on the twine for the hair - used a few pieces of Green Ribbon. This totally amazed me on how this really started to come together... even down to the braid.
more close up
Then pulled out my water colors to fill in the face.
More photos. Added Tim Holtz Idea-ology Foliage on the hair.
I then added the stamped image from the Rubber Stamp set onto a Tag I was playing with the other day with my homemade Jelli Plate and put that on the inside of the card to cover where the brad came out.
Some close up photos of the card now that it's completed.
For the inside of the card - I pulled out my fun Sin City Stamps. I used the Flower #2 Stencils & A leave stamp with my Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays
I know the photo doesn't cover the shimmer that's on the page - but LOVE LOVE...
