Scream or Sing

Hello.  Welcome.  Supposedly humming is good for you.  If you do prolonged humming it is supposed to set up vibrations at the cellular level that are good for the body.
1 2 3 hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

There, doesn't that feel better.

I started playing with my giant chocolate chip stamp from DRS, but my vision wouldn't become reality, so I set it aside and grabbed some pre-stamped images to fussy cut.  Somehow the chocolate chip ended up on Corrin's head and a card is born. 

I used some kraft card and cut a base using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die.   I stamped DRS Spooky Eyes Background and embossed with black powder.  This was when I was working on Plan A, but they kinda fitted into the madness so I thought I use them.  I added Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain distress inks through Memory Box Shine stencil

Ain't she just bootiful!  I stamped Curious Corrin on Prima Something Blue pp and coloured with watercolour pencils.  I stamped my DRS Giant Chocolate Chip with Versamark on brown card, clear embossed and fussy cut.  I added some ribbon and a bow and Corrine said it looked fab.  She says if she gets hungry she will be able to eat her hat.  She's sporting a black rhinestne necklace and glossy accent spotted dress.  I used Sizzix Movers and Shaper stamp die to cut the stamp and hand wrote 'Chocolate Understands' because I didn't have a stamp small enough and I really believe it does.
