Here's my new favorite card. I am so terribly pleased with myself, my head is exploding from self-congratulatory smugitude and my arm aches from patting myself on the back. I'm overstating things a bit but, really, haven't we all had those moments where the mojo kicks in at the right time and out comes a totally BA card (project/whatever)???? Enough already ... here it is.
Details ... So Saffron, Choco Chip, Vanilla + Au Choco-rocks paper. As much as I dislike w/c'ing on vanilla, sometimes it can't be avoided. I used my versamarker and colored over her shirt then embossed with iridescent ice EP (drool). I know this is not my totally original idea but it looks so flippin' cool IRL, I nearly PIMP'd (Peed Iin My Pants). Used the skinny swirl-thingy stamp from Doodle This on the saff layer (stamped w/ cocoa) which was also sponged (w/ choco chip ink, as were all layers except the biggest). Then I used the SSGP everywhere, her pants/shoes, the sentiment and dotted the doodle on the saff layer! The sentiment is from the $1 bin at Mike's. I used the key tag punch to make the layer for the sentiment. So easy. I also distressed the sides of the Au Chocolate.
I love how everything is swirly and all goes together. When that happens, I like to think of it as a moment of ZEN, card-wise.
OK, more stamping to come, hopefully.
