My card today features a fun stamp from Robyn's Fetish called Hog Wild Over You, which you can find here.
Aren't the happy couple a hoot? And aren't they PINK??? Good grief, I went through several images and combinations of Copics trying to find the right color blend. Think I'm kidding? Here's what they looked like when I finally settled on this one.
And I promise they're not quite as pink in real life, though it's clear I still need to get some skin-toned Copics. Eeek!
I created both patterned papers, embossing a music stamp on one and creating multicolor polka dots with the eraser end of a new pencil on the other. I placed a flurry of hearts with some ribbon bits and rhinestones for interest.
And here's a FABULOUS trick I learned from one of the blogs I follow, but I'm horrified that I don't remember which one. I will do some sleuthing and search her out so that I may give her proper credit, but in the meantime, this is one of the neatest tricks EVER, and that is how to make a circular or oval lacy border with a straight border punch. Yes, I said straight. You punch a straight piece, snip between the decorative units (but don't cut all the way!), and voila, a curvy border! Is that not the coolest thing ever?? And if you didn't punch a long enough section, it's easy to add in an extra unit or two (see bottom of shape).
Note: If anyone knows who the blogger is who does this regularly, please let me know! Thanks!
And that, dear readers, is today's card. Don't forget to head on over to Tuesday Alchemy to see what's what and enter our challenge. We'd love to see you!
