Hello, hello, it's me again. Trying to catch up after last nights hitch and taking advantage while the crafting mo-jo is upon me. I don't really do Valentines. Not such a hearts and red person. But it's that time of year. There are a lot of fun challenges out there that want a bit of love from us so I have put together this little guy. He's on the outside looking in and hoping for a bit of loving........
Over at CASology the want to see some red and Meghan's fish card reminded me that I had this cute stamp that I hadn't used in a while. Actually, I think it took me longer to find the stamp than to make the card! Is this a sign I have too many stamps (ooh, I heard lots of no, no, no, can't ever have too many stamps etc etc), or maybe just that I am disorganised? Yes, definitely that. If you look up messy in the dictionary I am sure my name will be part of the definition. Only kidding. Just. Simon Says Stamp and Show have challenged us to be messy. That's me. I am great at making a mess. Not so good at the clearing up. But I also managed to get covered in Distress Ink Barn Door when inking up my background so hopefully that's messy enough. I don't have a valentines embossing folder but I did have a pack of Design Objectives pre-embossed white cards so I just went a bit crazy with the old Barn Door and got a lovely red background. And fingers. And everywhere!!
I stamped the fish using All Night Media stamp 379D. I have had this forever. Well OK, a long time. Then to make the porthole effect I cut a circle out of foiled card and added some gem stickers as rivets. A hint of a tint on his lips and he's ready and waiting for some loving to come his way.
