Crafty Secrets Glamour Thanks
As you're reading this tonite, I'm officially starting my first night as a BOWLER, on a Monday night bowling league! YIPPIE! LOOK MOM, I'M A BOWLER! Yesterday we got together and did a little 'practicing' at the bowling alley. I did okay, I bowled a 92, a 100 and a 140! ONE-FORTY! Holy crap, I have to aim low, I can't ruin a low average with a 140 game! Except who knew you needed kneepads and a helmet for bowling; I ended up sprawled out in the lane at one point.
So on to stamping; tonite I'll post another girlie thank you card from the new Crafty Secrets "Glamour Girls" set. For this card I used papers from Crafty's "Radiant" paper pad, and my oval nestabilities. To make the flowery background behind the flower-throwing chickie, I used my hero arts distress background, stamped barely banana ink on it. Then I "kissed" the flower swirl stamp from this set onto the background block in a darker yellow ink. I created a post-it note mask of the girl image, laid it on top of her and then stamped the background block onto the oval. Clear as mud, right? I filled in the slight white outline of the girl with warm grey w2 copic, to create some shading. Copic colors used: red violet & carmine for her dress, skin white e00, pale sepia for her bow & hat.
Happy Monday, all!
