Sometimes a card just HAS to be made! This was the predicament I found myself in yesterday – do I make it or do I not? Jeanne sent me her idea for the JBWW Challenge this week – use a sentiment that is not a stamp, one that is either handwritten or computer generated. She opened the door me, and I really couldn’t help myself. The card had to be made!
I’ve had this idea running in my twisted, warped mind ever since I saw the Way to Go set by Gina K. Designs. I even told Kim of My Favorite Things about my idea and she kind of laughed – then said “that’s funny.” So in my attempt to be fair for all the Design Teams I’m on, I even threw in some Lizzie Anne Designs. It really is not my stamping choice to mix companies like this, BUT this card HAD to be made. The sets demand it, there is no other choice, and my mind could not let it go. I give you my sample for the JBWW Challenge – A Swirlin’ Birthday!
I stamped the toilet bowl from Way to Go by Gina K. Designs and the teacher from Back to School by My Favorite Things, and colored them with Copic markers. After layering the toilet bowl image, I cut a small slit in the middle of the seat, and stuck the teacher through to the back. There is a small piece of mounting tape on the back of her skirt, to hold her in place and to add a little dimension. For the background, I printed out my sentiment on a piece of Barely Banana cardstock, cut it to size, and then stamped in Versamark, one of the swirl images from So Swirly by Lizzie Anne Designs. Get it – swirl, so swirly, swirlin’ – BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, oh I slay myself! I added the photo corners, some black doodles and a little bit of ribbon to finish off the card.
