Are you serious?

This little guy's name is Mimo. Isn't he the kookiest?? I couldn't resist him and his friends when I saw them over at Starving Artistamps. They are sooo much fun to color! I know that they might not be everyone's cup of tea, but you have to admit that they put a smile on your face when you see them!

Today's card is for the Featured Stamper challenge on SCS. Today's fabulous stamper is Emily AKA 'ink-e'. She's only 18 and already creating stunning cards! I think we'll be seeing more of her in the future! ;)

I ended up choosing her 'birdies' card to case. I flipped the layout on it's end, changed out the paper and stamp set. I stamped him on watercolor paper in Versamark and heat set him with black ep. Using my aqua painter and SU inks (Buckaroo Blue for his body and Pumpkin Pie + Real Red for his pants) I watercolored him. I intentionally cut around him leaving a small margin of paper showing because that would make him pop off the paper a bit more. The matching sentiment is also from Starving Artistamps. Those sentiments crack me up!!

Hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday - last night's turkey was sooo good that I'm making turkey soup from the leftovers! Yum!!

Stamps: Starving Artists/Doodle Factory 'Creatures' and 'Quirky Sentiment'
Ink: Versamark Ink, Buckaroo Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red
Paper: Canson Watercolor, Kraft cs, Bazzil cs (black) and PP - Basic Grey

I am going to have to put some Starving Artistamps stamps on my Christmas list! Why is Christmas soooo far away? I am going to want them NOW!

You are going to be my new best friend. I love your blog and your creations. Thanks for posting, it's safer than having me come look in your windows.
