We had the first of our area stamping shows recently - this is one of the gems that I picked up while I was there. This particular stamp is an actual stamp (polymer) from Stampavie called Mummu's Bike, although you can also get it as a digital image in Mo's shop. Isn't she awesome? :)
(as always, click for a larger view)Other than the coloring, you can see that this card is fairly simple. After coloring the image with Copics I cut it out with a large oval nestie, then matted it with a piece of white paper (that was spritzed with pearl mist from Ranger). The background paper is from Basic Grey and the punched piece is a dark grey-brown done with a Martha Stewart punch. A little white satin ribbon and a bow completed the card. I should mention *how* I tied that bow - a VERY HELPFUL video tutorial on YouTube by Jak Heath which rocked my world! :) It's just like using a Bow Easy - but with your fingers. You don't get much cheaper than that!
Funny story about why I haven't posted in so long. I also bought some really cute Stamping Bella stamps & spent a bunch of time coloring one until it was *perfect*. Before I could cut it out and make a card, the cat (which we've only had 6 weeks or so) was up on my table and managed to knock down a bunch of ink pads (from nearly 3 feet up) onto my table. Of course the lids fell off. Of course they landed ink down... right on top of my *perfect* image! All that was left to do was laugh! ;P Turkey cat!
Thanks for dropping by!
