... Hi! I can hardly believe it's already Wednesday - the week is simply flying by. This morning's card features the cutest little bookworm, why? Well, I just love books of all varieties. I made this card using a couple of challenges:
Stamps: Sweet 'n' Sassy Stamps - Bookmark Bits & Pieces; Invoke Arts - Dream
Inks: Stampin' Up! - So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso
Accessories: SU Card - Naturals White, Baked Brown Sugar; SU Blender Pen
It's been a while since I played along with The Sweet Stop challenge, but as I was lucky enough to meet Korin and Dan Sutherland (owners of Sweet 'n' Sassy) at the Heirloom Stamp Show last week and picked up that last set of Bookmark Bits & Pieces, I had to play with it. I believe it's one of the new sets coming out shortly.
The colours over at Less is More are not my favourite, but the whole point of a challenge is to make us work out of our comfort zone. I decided to use the lovely Naturals White card to make the base (like the flecks in the card). I stamped the cute bookworm onto Naturals White card and coloured him with SU inks using my blender pen. I really like this quote and it works well with the bookworm image. I layered them onto some Baked Brown Sugar (one of the new SU in-colours). The big "dream" sentiment is part of my in Invoke Arts stamp.
For the inside I used another of the verses and added the owl image (just love owls). I think the owl is perfect for this card to do with reading and learning; the owl is traditionally associated with Athena the Goddess of Wisdom.
That's all for now - I'm off to get the rest of the washing sorted out! I do wish I had a magic wand that I could wave and all the housework stuff would be done. Then I could play for hours!! Well, I might do that anyway :))) See you soon.
