Over at Naughty or Nice, they want us to share a smile, so hopefully this card will raise one! I had to have a play with this new stamp, PapertArtsy JOFY mini 53, that I purchased at Happy Stampers.
I stamped her in versafine and coloured her in with my zig clean colours, before cutting her out and adding glossy accents to her eyes.
I also decided to have a first play with my distress oxides, broken china and wilted violet. I pressed them down on my glass mat ( I hadn't realised that they were creamy like a pigment ink), spritzed them with water and then smooshed on a piece of Tim Holtz watercolour card (as that was the first card to hand!). I dried the card with my heat tool and then shook some droplets of water on, left it a few seconds and dried it with my heat tool again. I repeated the process a couple of times until I was happy with the result. Love how it dries with a chalky type finish.
I stamped a sentiment from Whipper Snapper on a piece of white card as I felt the black text would be lost in the inky background. I cut it out at a "jaunty" angle and drew a border round it. I chose the sentiment as the background made me think of a child being left alone in a room with art supplies and drawing and painting in the wallpaper and creating a colourful mess!
As I'd cut the sentiment at an angle, I trimmed down the panel with a pair of scissors to echo the unevenness and stuck it at an angle on a 5x7 card ( I know, not square! Although, I had to trim down an 8x8 card to make it). I glued the sentiment onto the card and then added the girl with foam tape. I then drew the borders with a fineliner pen to finish.
I think I ought to give this card to my Hubby the next time he looks at my growing mound of craft supplies!
