Funny Pictures - Hippo Gifs

Wednesday, January 18


Greetings Earthlings-

It's the wee hours of the morning and I have given up trying to sleep after watching the clock for the last 2 hours..

Have I mentioned that I love Mo Manning? I do. I really do.

The challenge this week at Mo's Challenge Blog was to make a project that was 'clean and simple.' OK, I cheated a little.. I had this image colored and fancy cut already.. I've had it on my bulletin board for a few months waiting for some inspiration.

I used Copic markers to color the image. When I decided to use it this week the color of her jumper clashed with the card base. Hmmmm. I decided to go over that part again using colors that were in the BG family. Originally the jumper was a light washed out denim color. Now it's more turquoise-y. This is only one of the many cool things about the Copics - you can play with them long after you have 'finished' something.

I combined Mo's image with a grassy background. I got this from a great  site called Make It Crafty. They have some fabulous digi images and they also have actual rubber! Their challenge this week was Color Blades of Grass. I think this will barely qualify. I made a copy of the digi with the watermark M.K. on it . It's called Daffodil-dell. I use it often on my cards. I especially like how Bronte seems to be sniffing around..

OK, so here is the final card:

The sentiment is a rubber stamp I bought at a convention from 'a pile of rubber'. I've had it for quite a while now..

That's it for tonight. It's 4:30 AM and I am going to try to get back to sleep. (Good luck with that...)

Party on, Wayne!
