Good morning, friends and a very happy Monday to all. Did you watch the Harvest Moon Eclipse last night / this morning? Wasn't it amazing? Over here the spectacle started at 2am finished around 6am. Simply spectacular!
I made a card over the weekend. Another (dreaded) CAS ... and to add to the trauma - a One Layer Card ... aaaaargh! I am determined to not be put off by it and hopefully, in time, it won't take me quite so long to complete. This card landed in the bin... twice, before I decided to post it. Live and learn, right?
I inked up this cute set by Lawn Fawn called Wheelie Like You, which I bought a few months ago. The chubby tubby little hamster reminds me of my chubby tubby Peanut. The Vet wagged his finger at me recently and said little Peewee needs to eat less and exercise more. Try telling that to a Doxie!
Enough chit chat, here's the card: I masked circles and inked the outer edges, first with Tumbled Glass, followed by Bundled Sage for the smaller circle. A light brushing of Squeezed Lemonade brightened everything and to soften it I ran a damp brush over the inks. Next, I stamped the image and the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with Faber-Castell Polychromos in various shades of grey: Cold Greys ( 230, 231, 232) for the wheel and Warm Greys (270, 271, 272) for the hamster. I also added Silver 251 to the wheel and some Wink of Stella Silver.
Here's a closer look at the little guy. The card needed some colour so I stamped the little hearts from the set with VersaFine Satin Red. And gave a double coating of Wink of Stella Clear to the hamster and the hearts. To finish, I rounded the corners with the ½" Corner Chomper.
