I used SU's Basic Black as the card base. The image is stamped on GP110 white CS using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I doodled around the edge of the image using my SU Basic Black marker fine tip. The image is layered onto SU's YoYo Yellow and then Basic Black. I cut a 5-1/4" x 2-1/4" piece of YoYo Yellow and punched holes in it using assorted sized circle punches. I then sponged around the edges of the holes using SU's Summer Sun ink and then layered it onto another same-sized piece of YoYo yellow. The ribbon is SU's 1/4" white grosgrain ribbon. The "Cheese, Louise!" stamp (also from Hambo) was stamped onto GP110 with Tuxedo Black and then punched using the large oval punch and layered onto a black scallop oval. The mouse, being layered onto black, didn't show up very well, so I used the photo corner punch and punched out some YoYo Yellow corners. I think that solved the problem. The right corner was needing a little something, so I found a yellow and orange self-stick flower from ColorBoc that I received as part of a door prize at the Baltimore Shoebox Swap. After I scanned the card, I noticed that it looks like the little mouse has nibbled on one petal of the flower...I have since pulled the flower off and repositioned it so it isn't noticeable.
This second card I am also sumbiting to the Hogs & Sketches challenge. The image is a free digital image that Hambo offered. I printed him out a long time ago and hadn't done anything with him, so instead of letting him sit, I used him for this card. I colored him with my Copics (I think I hadn't used him because I have never used digital images before and was afraid they would smear with the Copics...and it didn't!) I used SU's Basic Black for the card base and layering. The white is GP110, which I ran through the Cuttlebug using the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder to make it look like clouds (or waves- whichever!). The DP is a scrap of something I bought at my LSS. The "Hello..." stamp is from a VERY old SU set- maybe Cute Critters? I punched it out using SU's new label punch. I'm not as thrilled with this card as I am with the mouse card, but he's cute and I can send him to my senior friend, Miss Laura. I think she'll get a kick out of him.
So, that's the extent of my Sunday stamping...so far! Hopefully after I finish laundry I can get back upstairs to stamp some more!
Just an FYI- keep a watch here...something fun is coming on Wednesday!!
