Isn't it cute? I'm posting this now thinking - I hope Rick doesn't check out my blog before the day (Rick - if you do, act surprised ok!). The colours were inspired by the Spring Break DSPs. Here's the recipe...
Stamps: Paisley Background, All in the Family, Everyday Flexible Phrases, Expressive Flexible Phrases
Ink: Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie, Blue Bayou, Basic Black
Paper: Blue Bayou, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Spring Break DSP (paper pieced clothes)
Other: Markers (Pumpkin pie, old olive), blender pen (to thump the blue bayou ink), Blue Bayou double stitched ribbon 1 1/4 & 1 3/8 circle punches, dimensionals
So what do you think? Is it too girly?
I really like the thumping technique. It gives colour, but its more interesting and and random than just colouring the rubber neatly with markers.
Hope you like it Mel. Sorry its not a great photo (I couldn't wait for natural light tomorrow!!) If you need a better shot I'll take another. Thanks so much for hosting these great challenges to keep us on our toes!!
