Hello all, happy 13th!! I love the 13th of the month, because that's my day to post over at Sundays with Crissy! This month's theme is Animals -- we want to see you use any animal on your card or project.
I know I've mentioned once or twice that I was on the High Hopes design team with the fabuloso Crissy Armstrong. Did I happen to mention how long we were on the team together? 3 years! 3 years!!! Which means every time she released new images, I got them. Do you know how much RUBBER that is?? And do you know how much of that rubber was in the shape of an ANIMAL?
While I am eternally grateful for my time on the team, & all that rubber --- my point is that it makes picking an image out each month impossible. An animal. ONE animal? Well I guess I could have made it a party & picked more than one. But after going through every single image I own, I decided on She-Baa Sheep. Because 1) it's an animal, 2) it's a great image for Easter, & 3) *she hadn't seen ink before* shhhhhhh...that one's a secret!
I colored She-Baa ( I just love that name) with my Copics -- practice, practice, practice -- one of these days I will be as comfortable with my Copics as I am with my pencils. This actually didn't turn out too badly --- I used lots of dots hoping to get the woolly effect. I stamped the image in gray Memento instead of black, since my plan was to keep the card a bit simpler & softer than my usual.
I added lots of Stickles on her bow, the flowers, & around the edges of the layers, just like my glitter idol Kim. Surely you know Kim, she's the master! The papers are SU's Basic Gray, Blush Blossom, & Cryogen Shimmery White (which is also what I stamped the image onto). It even probably would have looked better without the flowers -- but I just can't ever help myself, it's like an internal force -- one minute the flowers were in their jars, the next they were all glittered up & glued onto my card!
I do hope you'll join us at Sundays with Crissy -- the challenge goes the whole month so you still have lots of time to enter!!
Thanks so much for visiting me!! I hope you have a great week -- it's definitely spring here in Wisconsin (I know!! It's only March!) so I know I'll have a great one!
