I'm so happy that I stamped and crafted a ton before Sofia went into her surgery. It helped to calm my pre-op jitters, and even though I'm too exhausted to craft anything right now, I still have things to show you. Win-win.
You know me & cute images, so I obviously had to snap up the new Mama Elephant set, "bootastic." I made a few cards, just for fun:
I selectively inked the greeting, so I could stretch out the joke a little more... you have to be looking for that "just kidding" at the bottom! And I used the solid stripe from "message bands" to create the background.
The images are adorable. especially the mummy. but I can't help thinking they all look stunned, like they were all making spooky noises with the light off and then someone's mom came and flicked it on. how embarrassing.
I went somewhere different for the next card:
Before I chatter about the card, I would just like to point out that these cards were photographed one right after the other. (same location, same lighting.) The choice of background made a huge difference! I'm not usually a fan of red or orange backgrounds, but for halloween I'll pretend that it works. I much prefer the cool, blue backdrop.
I used lawn fawn's new journaling card die, and a sentiment from "critters ever after." They work perfectly with this little princess.
I masked the edges of the journaling card die and the cloud border to be able to sponge a blue sky behind our girl. A few touches of gold glitter and some rosy cheeks and she's positively regal. hee.
Until next time!
Two kinds of adorable, love it! Your description of the stunned little faces really made me giggle too - I hadn't thought of it like that before! As usual love your colouring and sponging of soft colours. Really makes everything come alive.ReplyDelete
Totally cute! I love your coloring and the little scenes you create! I too think it's hilarious that you scared those bootastic guys who were messing around in a darkened room!ReplyDelete
