You Crack Me Up!

Happy Friday everyone!

Did you have a good week? I hope so! I've been holed up in a meeting room again all week redesigning that warehouse for our corporate offices. I don't think the 'higher ups' have any idea what goes into designing a space. There's so much to think about - even for a preliminary design! But I'm having a little fun in the process, so it's all good!

All this week on the There She Goes blog, we've been revisiting a few of the older sets and today the Trendsetters have whipped up a whole set of new cards for you using these sets! You can check them out on the TSG blog, but before you do, check out my card! :)

For my card, I chose to use the Hunny Bunnies set but instead of using the main image, I decided to take a take a page out of Torico's book and create a card using a smaller image from the set instead. And I absolutely love it!

To make this card, I used papers from Crate Paper (the base paper), October Afternoon (the polka dots) and Cosmo Cricket (the floral paper)! I also used this week's Card Patterns #157 sketch for my layout. To create the image, I stamped out the solid egg a few times (along a pencil line) then stamped the chick in the egg, then a solid egg again. Then, using my Going Gray SU reinker, I colored in the shadow below the egg and I used Cool Caribbean for the background around the eggs above the line. The shadowed areas on the eggs were done with Distress Ink's Antique Linen. I used Morning Marigold on the chick and a little bit of Really Rust for the shadows. To pull the whole scene together, I used a Micron pen and a ruler to draw a line around the panel.

Now you can zip over to the TSG blog and check out the other fabulous cards! Hahaha Thanks so much for stopping by this week!
