Kinda Cute ... But Not!

card1a0110 LOVE this little chap ... rather more than is healthy to be honest ... and he may well appear on just about everything I make from here on in! Actually he probably won't ... to be fair ... he is not everyone's cup of tea! Great for a boy card though! And we all know how tricky they are ... Don't we! I wonder why that is??? He is in fact sporting a hat stamp designed by THE Wendy Vecchi ... LOVE Wendy's stuff!

As you can see I went to town with the Ranger Black Enamel Accents ... I was n't too keen when I first purchased them ... but now I am sold! The background was made by spraying Vanilla Custard Dylusions ink spray ... LOVE that stuff  ... onto white card and then adding some Wild Honey Distress Ink over the top blended through sequin waste. The letters are from the Sizzix Carnival Die and the background stamps are all Lord Tim of Holtz ... you know Tim ... the man that can turn rain into wine while rescuing stranded golfers on the Ryder cup course with just a Word Stick and a pair of Tonic Studio Non Stick Scissors ... LOVE Lord Tim ... but then you knew that anyway :0)card10110

Talking of cards ... I have one spot left on my BLine Designs card class on Monday ... if anyone wants it ... please ring the Lovely Karen at LB Crafts. LOVE Karen!

That's me for today ... I am all out of LOVE ... you see I am still singing ... and this probably ends my musical week ...

Laters!

Well, you KNOW how much I love Stampotique people so he is totally my cuppa. Love the brightness of it - I think it works in great contrast to the oh-so-black letters. Another fab one!

He's great - I recognise him and his slightly weirdy cuteness - what a good idea to put a hat on him - I hadnt thought of combining this way - thanks for the tip!

LOVE (!) this card, but then I would he's a Stampotique! I think I need some of those enamels - you're a bad influence. x

Thank you for the lovely comments ... the hat idea was n't mine though ... it was inspired by Dyan Reaveley ... she does all sorts of cute things to her Stampotique stamps.
