Henry the Chicken - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi.  This is Henry, a chicken with a dream. Hahaha...
Henry is part of a new shipment of stamps I received from Rubbernecker Stamps and the Motives Questioned sentiment was a perfect match.  A little Chickenwire Background and the card was pretty much finished.  There's not a lot of colouring on this so it didn't take long at all.

Clunk Clunk - All Dressed Up Challenge



Today is the beginning of a new challenge at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog so for my card I decided to use Clunk Clunk which is an image perfect for the little boy's card I made. It passed the test - our six year old grandson was here, saw the card and told me he really liked it so we are now good to go!
The theme for the challenge is always Anything Goes with the only rule to enter being you use an All Dressed Up image. If you don't have any, they can be can either be purchased at the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop or by downloading one of several cute freebies offered on the blog.
Be sure to head on over to the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog where you can see all kinds of inspiration from the rest of the girls on the team. Join us for some fun and wonderful creations at the Facebook Fan Page, Facebook Challenge (there is a theme for this one) and there's also a Pinterest page to view some more gorgeousness.

Gotcha

Dragons anyone?  I must be stuck on dragons because I did a couple of them and posted one last week.  For this card, I decided to try using a new stencil to create inner white space as reverse shading.  The image was coloured first and the stenciling done with Bundled Sage distress ink, getting lighter and lighter towards the image.  It's a big time saver doing this and not having to shade around the image.

Bike on the Street - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi there and I'm glad you've popped in for a visit.  Today's card is using all Rubbernecker Stamps products with the Bike on the Street image.  This is a fun image to do and works up so quickly because there's so little colouring on it.
I made a run to my local scrapbooking store this week and found this pretty piece of paper so I snapped it up quick and for a change I used it instead of hoarding it in my stash.

Flowers for You - All Dressed Up Returning Images

 Hi there. We have another release at All Dressed up and there's another four great images. Actually, it's more of a re-release because these images were previously issued as exclusive images but now they are available for all of us. Here's a peek at the four new images available in the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop now.

I was given Flowers for You to use and she's as cute as a button.  I always suffer leg envy when I see Wendy's girls because of the long, leggy look of them.  If I were 6" taller, I might have them too but oh well....

Dragon Pals

Wow, can you believe it is August already?  I don't know where the time has gone but it's flown by.
I decided to make a shaker card with this cute dragon stamp.  I wasn't sure about the end result but my daughter saw it and thought it was very cute and dropped a couple of big hints as to where I could send it so that made me feel a lot better.

Epstein - Rubbernecker Stamps

It's time for some more Rubbernecker Stamps inspiration and today I've used Epstein, one of the cute little owls.  I love those big eyes...
With my last order, I received the Watercolor Splat Set and I love this set.  It's ten different little splats so for the card, I used different ones and stamped it a couple times using two different ink colours.  To me, it looks a lot like the smooshing technique but without the mess.
I used a different paper for colouring this time and for no other reason than that I have three large packages of it that needs to be used.  Normally I use the Copic XPress paper and it works so well but I thought I'd give this other one a go.  Not nice... the paper is really thick and dense so the markers don't soak in, they just sit on top of the paper and move around.  I don't think it's entirely the paper though because I've had it happen when using some of the Copic E colours with the Xpress paper but this is worse.  You can literally move the colour with your finger so as a result, shading seemed impossible.
