Hey there!!! Wow... January is over!! Can't believe how time goes by so quickly... especially the older I get!!! Anywhoo... have a card to share that I made for two challenges: ColourQ and Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge, the first one of the new year... YAY!!
For my card I used the cute little TE a la carte' stamp: Animals in Love - Whales. The sentiment is from the TE set Birds of a Feather. When I started out making the card I was going to use some Stampin Up! designer paper in real red, but when I pulled out the piece I was going to use I just wasn't that thrilled with it. So I hunted around through my rather large collection of 6x6 pads and found the perfect piece in the My Mind's Eye Rosy 6x6 pad. I just love all the My Mind's Eye collections! I die cut the circle using a Spellbinders plain circle die and then stamped the whales on it using Tuxedo Black ink. The little hearts were colored with Copic markers. I stamped the whales a second time, colored them with Copic markers, trimmed them out and popped them up on the first image. Some black/white bakers twine was tied around the circle and then the sentiment stamped using Real Red ink. A scalloped circle was die cut from Rose Red cardstock and then everything was layered up. As I was checking the TE store to make sure I had the name correct for the whale stamp I saw a super cute stamp with two Flamingos. I love flamingos and so I think I'm going to need to get that stamp!!
