Cutie Pie Spider!!!
I have something totally fun and sparkly to show you today!! I've been LOVING my new Robyn's Fetish digi images!! I purchase them on her site, download them and then have the flexibility of printing them in whatever size I need!! I just open the image in something like MS Paint and resize! It's SO easy! I'm lucky to have a good printer that runs most cardstock through so that's helpful!!
I LOVE this adorable spider. Who ever said all spiders needed to be scary anyways? ;) Yesterday morning I was reading the funny pages from The Boston Sunday Globe...yes...I'm 36 and I *still* read the funny pages. I don't find them funny and I didn't as a child but the images are cute to look at.
This week's Fox Trot cartoon really caught me with it's colors. Super bright, funky and fun! I was so inspired that I went up to my studio with coffee in hand knowing exactly what I wanted to do with these funny pages and my new spidery image!! My fantabulous husband took over hanging with our two babes and let me create uninterrupted until I was done. Phew...he's so good.
I layered some of my FAVORITE SU! DP, stitched, heat embossed the web using my Versamark Pen and clear embossing powder, and then ran silver Stickles over it. I let it dry and then EVER so carefully using a self-healing cutting matte and my Exacto knife cut the insides out of the web to show the cool cartoon colors beneath.
I simply ADORE how this came out!!! The adorable spider was colored with my Copics and the 'sweet' sentiment is an SU! stamped with Brilliance Pigment Ink in Pearlescent Poppy and then heat set.
I hope you enjoyed my creation!!!
Happy Crafty Monday everyone!!!
