9/9 THURSDAY Stinky Situation
I hope you don't think my card STINKS!!!! LOL
I stamped these wonderful trees from this fun set using black ink and stamping onto white cs. I used Copic markers to color the sky between the trees. Next I inked up the tree - yes the tree - from the set Regal and Proud which was released last month using one shade of green ink and then thumping with two more shades of green markers before stamping (three times) onto the bottom of the tree panel to give the look of bushes. Isn't that great? I love thinking of other ways to use my stamps. Next I cut/embossed that panel using the oval Spellbinders die. I cut the next smaller shape into the green cs square and aligned it with the opening and leaving a 1/16" edge of green around the panel. I cut the black cardstock to size and positioned my oval opening panel in place, adhering with a removable adhesive on one edge, then slipping the oval I had cut from the tree panel below it and adhering to the black panel. Next I popped the panel with the opening into place using foam squares to pop it up. Next I stamped the three skunks and cut them out. Can you see all three? One is tucked back onto the back tree panel with just a little of him showing in the oval. The other two are popped up and their tails curled a little for a bit more dimension. The sentiment is stamped with black onto the white cs and punched out and then added to a black punched oval to make it stand out. This was all mounted onto a white card and the inside stamped with the small skunk on the bottom right and the bigger skunk was stamped and cut out and added to the top left corner of the inside with a little foam square below the tail toadd more dimension. I left plenty of space for an apology. Sometimes you just need to tell someone that you stink and you are sorry! Or is that just me? lol
