Welcome to another Try It Out Tuesday! I can't believe it's already the last Tuesday in April; boy the month has flown by! This week Suzanne challenged us to "Half It". You can only use part of your stamped image on your project this week, not the whole thing!!! All that time every night agonizing over finding JUST the perfect shape and EXACTLY the right size for the image -- and she makes us cut 'em up?!? LOL. Challenging - but MUCH fun; I love being made to think outside of my box.
Of course I reached for one of my Anki's Sweethearts to make today's challenge card! This is Julia with Flowers. She has the sweetest little dress on! Now you know I love my boys to death and wouldn't trade them for anything, but I am sometimes sad to miss out on the opportunity to dress a daughter in GIRLY GIRL dresses and take her out on the town, heehee. I suppose I will have to settle for coloring and accessorizing my images, huh? I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics, then went through and added some highlighting with the white gel pen. Colors are Baja Breeze, Black, and Pretty in Pink.
I know I have mentioned this before, but it's such a good deal that it bears repeating. If you like these Anki's Sweethearts as much as I do, check out the major deal that Susana has on these fun images. But the "bundle" of all 10 together for only $50. That's a big discount off the individual prices, so In the end that just amounts to free rubbah. mmm...free rubbah!
Ok, what else? After I stamped and colored, I cut out the image and mats with Square Nestabilities. Then I colored some paper flowers with coordinating Copic colors and added them to the corner. I also added some Kaisercraft Pearls in Snow on the flower and in the corner. Border punch along the bottom edges, ribbons from my big "bag-o-ribbon" and viola!
Thanks for looking! I hope you are inspired to play along with us, I'd love to see what you can do when YOU "Half It!".
