Funny Faces

Say cheese!  When I first laid eyes on the Roberto’s Rascals this was one of the first images I saw and immediately fell in love.  They’re just like my kids!  I can’t get a straight face out of them unless I threaten something fearce and then I risk the chance of getting a sad face.  LOL  But that’s why they invented digital cameras … 100 pictures… 1 good mug shot!  Yep, that’s how it is now days.  🙂

This project uses Funny Faces from Roberto’s Rascals and also the instant camera in Say Cheese from Lawn Fawn (plus sentiment and smilie face).  I colored it using the sparkly Curious Metallic Cryogen White paper and my Copic markers.  The papers are from all over the place but the dragonflies are Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments that I painted with sparkle paint.  I love those little guys!  Lastly are two corduroy buttons.

I had fun with this project!  Thanks for dropping by and I hope you had a great weekend!

For my project I combined a monochromatic look with a no-lines technique and then added a little bit of coloring so the characters would pop out.  There are so many fun things in this stamp but I really wanted to focus on the kids at the window.  😀

Here’s a list of Copic colors that I’ve used:
C0, 1, 3, 4, 6, 8
E27, 23, 33, 21, 41
E49, 47, 44
E70, 71, 74, 77
YG63, 67, 95, 61, G20
R46, 35, 32, 30
R59, 46, 17, 14
W3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
B00, 91, 95, 95

I used the rubber stamp and stamped it in London Gray Memento ink.

This was the perfect themed stamp for me to color as I love the scene and that it’s generic for all types of winter holidays!  Of course, I used a Christmas paper for my color selections so this one is defininatly for Christmas.  He he he  The paper ripping frame was something that “dawned” on my and half way through curling all the edges I had remembered that Jennifer just sent me a project with the same effect.  So thank you Jennifer for the burst of inspiration!  LOL
