May Card #15

I feel just like this today! Somebody sent me this funny image...not sure who it was now. So, I colored her up in my coloring frenzy this week. The rest of the sentiment is inside the card, "I've completely skipped my mother and become my grandmother." That one just cracks me up. The sentiment is by Art Impressions. Not sure who makes the funny woman.

I just recently learned how to stamp a partial image cleanly like I did with the sentiment here. You know how you want some of the words in one place and some in another. Well, you cover the portion of the stamp you don't want with scotch tape, ink up the stamp, take off the tape, then stamp the image or words. I'm probably the only person who skipped the take off the tape part and struggled with this simple tip. When I read someone's instructions somewhere last month that included the take off the tape part, it was an ah hah moment for me. So, if you didn't know this, please share a comment so I won't feel so silly all by my lonesome.

Tami - you did a wonderful job. I love this card. I saw this stamp a few times and picked it up and put it down! I may have to pick it up again and buy it this time!

I love Maude! She's smokin', baby! As for the tape business, I've found that leaving it on creates quite a mess, but I call it my interpretations of stuff! Great card, Tami.

This sassy lass is from Art Impressions, too. I just love her. I feel like that somedays, too. Great coloring with those markers. After Saturday, you'll be able to color like that with your pencils. :)
