Today over at Just Us Girls we have a great Inspiration Photo from Lisa!
When I first saw this photo…I got really excited because I knew that because it
actually didn’t say Happy New Year anywhere on the photo, I had the flexibility to change it up a bit
and think outside the box. I was then talking to and looking at fellow designer Sharyn’s card
for this challenge and one thing led to another and I realized I had this great
stamp set from Gina K Designs that would work perfectly!
Thanks Sharyn for your constant inspiration and Lisa for a great photo this week!
Okay enough is enough Nancy…get on with it!
What do you think??? Kinda outside the box or what?
The stamps from the set are the clock and the word treasure.
The sentiment at the bottom I made on my computer. (cheating I know!)
Let me explain some details on how my card came to be.
I took my jar stamp and stamped it on a piece of card stock and
then put it in my printer and enlarged it as it was to small.
I colored it with colored pencil…Hubby says next time don’t stamp it
in dark ink as it messes up the shading with those very dark lines.
(That was my art lesson for the day!) Thanks Hubby!
He had the brilliant idea to make it
appear that it had a lid on it even though it doesn’t by using a gold pencil.
When the card was finished I thought, why not add gold stickles to the lines on the lid
to give it some depth. I was very happy with how it came out!
The clock was also colored with prisma colored pencil.
I am going to give it to my son when he is back at college.
I sure hope he doesn’t pay me a blog visit anytime soon!
Now, head on over to the JUGS blog and see what my talented
teammates did with this challenge!
