My main squeeze!

Hello Friends! Another day...another fun project to share. This card can be sent for any happy occasion. It's sure to give a little chuckle and a smile.

The stamp is from Eat Cake Graphics. It's called Main Squeeze. Isn't it a HOOT?!!!

I colored with Spectrum Noir Markers:
  • Hair - EB3, EB8, GB8
  • Skin - FS1, FS2, FS3, TN2, CR3
  • Mouth - FS7
  • Dress/Shoes - BT2, BT4, BT5, DR2, DR5
  • Pants - EB1, EB2, GB8
  • Shirt/Shoes - GG2, GG3, Blender
  • Shading - IG1, HB1, Blender

To create the shaded "frame" around the image, I masked off the area and lightly blended with distress ink. Super simple and very effective! The hearts are die cut and colored over with Clear Sparkle Pen, then covered with Glossy Accents.

The sentiment stamp is also from Eat Cake Graphics. It's called In Her Handbag. The full sentiment actually says "In her handbag was chocolate. She was happy."  I just inked up and stamped the part I wanted. That's a great way to get more miles from your sentiment stamps!

I also wanted to share a great "Coloring Curly Hair Tutorial" by Dilyana over on the Spectrum Noir Blog. Super simple I tell ya!

As always...thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I've inspired you to pull out your supplies and get a little creative today.
