About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Baby we got a challenge.......

Its from Squigglefly.....(<----check 'em out) this weeks challenge is a color challenge.... The colors are bordering blue, chocolate chip and pretty in pink. Usually when I get the colors together I get a feel as to what the theme the finished product is going to be. They looked like baby colors to me, so thats the great squigglefly image I chose. Actually this image is from a whole sheet of images you get on one purchase (baby theme). I found some awesome dsp that matched and had little kids on it already, so I placed my image all around the paper until I found a spot that would fit like the child is watching her baby sister. Turned out to fit perfect. I colored the image using my color pencil technique and cut it out. Then when I put it all together I noticed something odd. I had printed it out on white paper and it looked totally off against the antiquey background... so I found a chalk color that kinda looked like a vanilla/buff color to match the dsp background and chalked around my entire image. It worked!!!! Stamped the "family" in the corner. Now the card was finished....

Side note: Harlee's party was a success, and we had a blast. Coney dogs, chips, chicken salad sandwiches, {Corona...ooopps did I say that outloud...bwahahahahahahah},cake and icecream....I'm still stuffed. I'll post pics soon.

Until later, babes......Gotta split....TFL !!!
