The Bunny is Sick....

Happy Easter! Today, I want to share a card for you that I made for my family. Fairly recently, I saw some freebies from Useless Trinkets, and I quickly became pretty nuts over the images. I haven't had much time to make projects just for the sake of making them, but I knew I just had to make one with Cookie Jar the unicorn today. I'm telling you, these digis are the shit. Sometimes a little creepy, sometimes a little cute, and always freaking hilarious.

So apparently, the Easter Bunny is sick, so Cookie Jar the unicorn decided to step in and help out. What a good friend!

I used watercolors for Cookie Jar, plus a bit of Fireworks Spray from Imagine Crafts on his background. For the main background, I opened up my first to pots of Dylusions paint (I have wanted these paints for SO long! I can't wait to get more colors!), and I finger-painted it. I also used 2 Dylusions sprays on it.

A teeny piece of washi tape was the only other thing I thought the card needed. Much to my delight, when my husband opened the card, he let out quite the guffaw. He loved it and thought it was really funny. Thank you so much to Jessa, the artist behind Useless Trinkets, for these fantastically fun images. I adore them, and i can't wait to color up some more. I have Gustav the Monster all printed out and ready to go. He's sad that I haven't colored him yet, but if I get all of the cooing I need to get done soon, he's next on my list of projects. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
