I was staring at my stamps sitting on my shelf the other day & noticed a case marked "Fluffles". Wow ---now there's a cutie who hadn't seen daylight in a while!
I love all the Fluffles stamps --- have they come out with any new ones in the last couple of years?? I love this one with all the itty bitty ladybugs. The layout ended up being quite simple --every time I tried adding something more it didn't look right so I left it. Fluffles doesn't need "stuff" -- he's a cool cat all on his own!
The image is colored with pencils & Goo Gone -- papers are Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety, both layers embossed using Cuttlebug folders (Swiss Dots & Swirls -- 2 folders I used to use all the time but neither of which have seen daylight in a while either!!). A few flowers ..... a few pearls .... a bit of lace ....
I colored the background a bit using Distress Inks .....something you all know I do not do too often OR too well (which is why I don't do it too often, lol)
I used Glossy Accents on the ladybugs. I don't know if ladybugs are really glossy, but it seems I have to gloss them every time I see them!
I added just a wee bit of bling to the flowers...and OH what's that peeking out from the inside? It looks like matching paper! Yes, I managed to finish the inside AT THE SAME TIME I did the front!
Here's something else I don't use often -- my cute little personalized stamp on the back. THAT'S because I dropped my inked up sponge on it. Happens every time I sponge edges --I drop my sponge usually on my already-colored image. I've become very creative in covering up errors. It happened on the back of the card this time & boy was I cursing -- until I remembered my whole collection of "handmade by" stamps. AND it has a ladybug on it!! Actually come to think of it, I also have a Fluffles "handmade by" stamp -- that would have made more sense!!
I hope you have a terrific weekend & a very fruitful Easter. We are going to my mom's ---it's all about the food for us!! Actually, ALL holidays are all about food for us! I am making dessert as I usually do (I *love* to bake! Cooking, not so much). And since I couldn't choose, I am making more than one. If they turn out well (I've never made either recipe before) I will share some photos & recipes :)
