I’m feeling On Top of the World! Well at least my stamp is . . . that’s its name from Gorjuss stamps. I finally finished coloring this image and put on a card. I had most of it done in pencil and completed the hair in Copics. At that point, it sat on my desk for a couple days and I just wasn’t getting to it. And there it sat.
Then this evening, I thought I’d treat myself to some ice cream. However, when I sat down to my desk, this image called out begging to be finished. I thought, well, OK, I’ll put a card together really quick and then have my ice cream. I can do that! On my mark, set, go!
I turned on the photo lights so they could warm up. Then I raced to pull papers, cut them and assembled the card. I managed to remember to antique the edges a little so they didn’t stand out so much. When I grabbed the Happy Birthday To You chipboard I saw that it was too big. Ack!
No worries . . . I was able to cut it down and have it work perfectly. I used a few embellishments that were scattered on my desk and set the image down with foam dots. Snap, snap, snap a few pictures and I was finished! … and the ice cream? Well, it had melted. Blah! I’ll just have to put that back into the freezer and snack on it a different day.
