Happy, happy hump day everyone! I hope your week is going great. Mine has been fine. The weather has been so much nicer and that always puts me in a good mood. My boss's youngest daughter came to see me after her first day of 1st grade. She was super happy to have the teacher she has. Then she looked at me and said "Your hair is curly today!" I said "yes, I know. I usually straighten my hair and today I didn't have time so it's curly." She stared at me a minute and said "you mean you wake up with it like that?" and I said "yes" and she said "You are awesome!" LOL! Doesn't take much to be awesome in her eyes! Then she pulled a section of her hair out and said "I have one curl here" and I pulled a section of mine out and said "I have one part that's straight!"
Yesterday was Tuesday and that means there was another Teaparty at Splitcoast Stampers. This week our cards are going to an eleven year old boy named Tyler who has had a rough time of it. We were supposed to bring anything that would make him smile and I thought that Fawn Palmer's Totally Pawsome doggie would do the trick especially when it has this punny sentiment!
I colored the image with Copic markers and chalked a little on the background. The corners were clipped and then I pierced a hole in each. I did the same thing to the sentiment. The background paper is more that I got from Rhonda. She is the best at picking out cute papers! I added a little bit of crystal lacquer to his nose. A border at the top finishes it off!
I made another card with the same image since I had printed it out two times. One of the things I love, love, love about digital images is the ability to change them up a bit. On the first card I stretched the dog out a bit making him taller. You can see on this card that the dog is a little squatter.
It was colored with Copic markers. I computer generated the sentiment directly to the card and used some more of the wonderful paper Rhonda sent me. A blue ribbon hides the seam. The inside of the card says
"Have A Yappy Birthday!"
I am entering the first card into Squigglefly's latest challenge - Techniques new or old. I think manipulating a digital image is a technique! Try to play along - you could win your choice of any image in Squigglefly's awesome store!
