Music runs through my veins, so when Hambo Stamps announced their theme to be “Sing Your Art Out”, I knew I had to join in the fun. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am forever humming, whistling or singing constantly (sometimes over and over and over and…well, I have been known to drive the people near me to madness when I can’t get a song out of my head). If you came from Leslie's blog, then you're on the right track. If not, start HERE for a toe-tappin', hip-hoppin', jammin good time!
I have to admit that I made not one but THREE cards (and I was hard-pressed to stop there) for this Blog Hop.
|Cool Cat digi image|
For my second card I used Cupcake Rain digi image, one of my favorites (and a prize for being Queen of the Hoedown on Hambo’s weekly blog challenge). Mmm, cupcakes - every girl’s sweet fantasy, yummy daydream - and I am definitely a “Daydream Believer”. This song by the Monkees inspired me to make my card. Using Copics B04, G14, E00 & 08, Y11 & 17, RV34, C1 & 3 and R29, I colored my image, glitzing it with Sakura twinkling gel pen and Liquid Glass. I used green Glitter carstock for the background and leftover pieces of patterned paper to frame the image. Even my cupcake embellishments were leftovers from a previous project!
I colored my penitent pig with Copics: R29, RV04, N3 & 100 (black). I cut out a large circle from white glitter carsdtock to spotlight my image, inked the edges a bit (my favorite technique), and attached a "ball & chain" made from a felt button and a key chain. I popped the fugitive onto the text-background paper and attached it to a 6x6 card base of Paper Trey Hibiscus Burst cardstock.
Now it's time to sway to the rhythm of Hambo—on to the next blog , but don’t forget to leave some love before you go!!
