I made this art today as I watch the pre-game show for the Super Bowl. IT's not just a man thing. Some of us women like football too.
Besides that my local Stamp Store: Stamp Your Art Out held a Super Bowl sale all weekend long and I got this cool new stamp cube by B Line Designs called Bella Twosie (among other things!).This cube came in two sizes which is cool because I can use the smaller one to decorate the envelope(hey stamp companies this is a good selling point). And if you are a Stamper you know that new stamps call out for you to ink them up. I am also in love with this new technique of creating your own background paper that looks surprisingly like designer scrapbook paper.
Wow it was so fun to create it. Here's how. I started with the ribbon as my inspiration for the colors I used. I have had this ribbon forever and often when I go to use it the colors are just not right for the finished piece, but I love it so today I am making sure it will work. I choose Color Box Fluid Chalk in Yellow Ochre, Pink Pastel, and Wisteria, looks like they match pretty closely to the ribbon. Then I choose a stamp set from Fancy Pants called "In The Garden". I distressed the edges of the card and layers with the Tonic Distress tool and I added a bit of Copic Marker to the lips.
Super Bowl prediction ...well someone will win...ok seriously I am rooting for the Arizona Cardinals. There it is in writing!!!!
