I had the best idea come to me AFTER I finished making today's card! Therefore, you will only get to hear about my great idea rather than see it. Well, maybe someday you'll see it. LOL! Let me just show you what I did make and then I'll tell you my idea.
This card is using today's new release from Squigglefly, Lonely Friend. I love the perspective of this image and wanted to bring that out a little more by creating a scene, so I drew the sidewalk for the dog to sit on (yes, that's a sidewalk!), and then I chalked the grass, sky, and road. I know my bus is taking up the whole road, but it's a small country town and the roads are narrow! LOL!
The image is colored with copic markers and I think I went a little overboard on my highlights, but it is what it is. I put the sentiment at the bottom of the card to be a little different, and also it kind of reminded me of a puff of exhause coming out of the bus!
Okay, now for my great idea. I was thinking you could erase the "School Bus" words before you printed it and make it say "National Guard" or "U S Army" and color the bus in camouflage. Wouldn't that be a perfect card to send to a soldier letting them know we miss them and we're waiting on their return?
I think camouflage would be hard to color, but then again it's imperfect blobs of color really, so how hard could it be! Feel free to use the idea even if I don't get a chance to, and I'd love to see it if you do!
Yesterday I asked on the squigglefly yahoo group which of the of the one a day in May images are favorites and no one could come up with just one. Do you have a favorite? Let me know if you do when you leave a comment!
Hope your day is a great one, and thanks for stopping by!
