So this past week my husband and I went camping. I found out while at work Wednesday that my husband was going to have Saturday off so we took off camping as soon as I got off of work. I was throwing all my craft supplies in a bag so I could play while my hubby was out fishing. Well don't you know I would forget something super important? I forgot my Neenah paper!!! Oh and not to mention an acrylic block!! I used the back of some packaging to put my stamp onto and used the back side of some cardstock to stamp onto. Oh my, I love my Neenah!! the cardstock bled and just didn't blend like my Neenah! I think I need to put a supply in the trailer! Anyways, I was able to make this card for the Birthday Challenge over at La-La Land Crafts. I purposely used different face colors then I have used before so that I could enter into the iCopic challenge that is to use skin tones that are out of my comfort zone. I used E-51, R-02, E-01,E-11,E-13,E-95. *Well dang it, I missed the deadline!*
I had a lot of fun coloring this little guy up. Even without my Neenah paper!!
I used a mixture of Cosmo Cricket Paper and My Mind's Eye. I distressed the paper with my scissors. That was just one more thing I forgot at home, my distressor! The metal plate is by Tim Holtz. Don't you just love it? And a peak at the inside of course!!
So, do you have a Facebook? All I need is for you to go on over to La-La Lands blog and "Like" my card. The card with the most votes wins a 36 piece Copics. Wow!! OK, now you are on your way over to enter aren't you? I can't blame you!!!!
