Oh Dear!

Thursday, April 9, 2009

I had different plans for this Whipper Snapper image.

I usually go to bed and dream up different layouts or sentiments to go with the images I've colored and up until the night before last, I had another layout planned for this image. Then this layout formed in my head and the other idea vanished! Does that ever happen to you?

I'm still pleased with how it turned out. It looks a little on the elegant side, but then you can't help kaugh at this little guy! This is a great image isn't it?! I think his whiskers or sprouts are hilarious! Perfect for get well cards!

One of the things I really like to do is choose paper colors that are complementary (or almost) to the main color on the image. That way the image really stands out. So when I was flipping through my stash I pulled this piece out by K&Company (that my friend Mary sent me) because it was mostly red, but still had a hint of that yellow/green color in it from the bug.

Again, he was colored with SU reinkers and an aquapainter.


More blog candy anyone?!

My wonderfully talented friend Kadie Ensley, who also happens to be on The Greeting Farm's Design Team this Spring (plug plug) is giving away some of their lovely stamps (the Fairies) and all you have to do is leave a comment and follow her blog!?! How easy is that? So go now - follow her blog, see some delicious cards and you just might win some CANDY!

Hmmmm.....all this talk of other people's candy and I haven't even given any candy away of my own. Shame on me, no?! Don't worry, I will have some soon.....I've been hoarding a few of my favorite things for you all. ;)
