I have to tell ya'.....My hubby took a big liking to this stamp as soon as he saw it. And he is a fella that usually just grunts when I show him anything to do with stamping. I bought him a guitar for his Birthday a little over a yr ago....and he plays that noisemaker everyday!!...lol... I really don't mind....sometimes he even talks me into singing along. The last time Trina was here.....we had a real blast singing while he played....I mean we literally brought the house down!...LOL...the dogs all hid in the other room....my son went home shortly after we began..(or I should probably say...ran home)...and I'm sure a few neighbors may have closed their windows...but it sure was FUN!!.
On to the card......
I made the base just using a plastic bowl container....I folded the CS...and placed the bowl over it (leaving one rounded edge hanging over the folded edge a tad) and drew around it with a pencil. Then I just cut it out. The finished card is approx. 5.25 inches....and will fit perfectly into my 5.5" square envelopes.
I colored the image with copics for base, prismacolor pencils and h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please remember.....do not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*
I used a label maker for the words. I drew the stars freehand. The image layer and the stars are popped up on foam squares. There is glitter on the guitar.
Ink - memento black, barely banana, creamy caramel. Paper - GP White, treasures CS, provo craft, making memories, Michael's, dcwv. Accessories - button, gold cord, brads, label maker, glitter, netting, stitching, round nestie
The last time I saw my daughter Trina...we did a little stamping together (we can't sing all the time..lol)....She loved these little Motivet characters....I understand she already has a card made using one of these Cuties...so keep and eye on her blog...Trina's Timeless Treasures.
Have a Wonderful Weekend!!....and Thank you so much Everyone for all your Lovely Comments!!
P.S....I have been asked in the comment section where I find my lace. I've found some at Joannes fabric...(in the dollar bin)....Walmart..any fabric stores....garage sales.... I've even taken off of old garments. I have also taken apart gathered lace...and ironed it flat. (if you find just the right string...gathered lace will just unravel)...then I use the netting for bows ect.
