Hey All!! Here I am with another week of the awesome Robyn's Fetish Wacky Wednesday Freebie!! This week you are SURELY going to want to grab the ADORABLE and NEW image!!! Perfect for that special someone for Valentine's Day!!
I went with what ended up being more "altered art" than card really. But it is a card that I will be giving my 3 year old for Valentine's Day. I designed it with him in mind, actually. The puppy reminds me of our dog Billy so I colored him to somewhat resemble him. All black and white spots with one patch of brindle. =)
I printed out puppy and colored him with my Copics on his spots. And traced him with my lightest Grey Prismacolor marker - 10% cool grey. Just to give him a little dimension. My son's favorite colors right now are green, purple and blue. So I tried to run with that as much as I could but I also tried to let myself just go where my creative side wanted to go. And it went alright!!
I continued to color the puppy's heart with my Copics and Sakura Sparkly Gel pens. I then used my Diamond Glaze (last thing I did) for the inside of the heart. I used my Souffle pens for his furry tuft on his chest. I matted him on a piece of kraft paper and corner rounded two of the corners.
My card measures 6x6. The card base is a light green from a Martha Stewart jumbo cardstock pack I bought on sale at Michael's. The next layer is from an older SU! 6x6" paper pack. I then pulled out an old, vintage postcard that's in his favorite shade of blue. I backed it with more MS cardstock in Navy and used Modge Podge to give it a little sheen.
I trimmed out the hearts with wings and the heart that says courage as my boy is simply one of the most courageous kids I know. Not with everything but with things that matter the most.
The LOVE stamp is from an old SU! set. I stamped it and heat embossed it. Backed with a little scrap of the same yellow and white paper that you see in the scallop next to the puppy. I stitched carefully around the outside and adhered it with a foam pop dot. I needed something in the upper left corner so I used a Doodlebug stamp LAUGH, stamped and heat embossed. I then realized that I had the sentiments laugh and love and the third one LIVE just goes perfectly with them!! So I used some silver sticker letters to add the LIVE sentiment next to the puppy.
That left the right side of the puppy a little blank looking. So I used my notch punch from SU! - you know...the one with the little half moon on it? to create the scalloping on the right side. I punched holes and added the copper brads. Lastly I added a cool skull sticker to the bottom. Just peeking up a little...my boy loves pirates!!!
So all in all while this card is mish-mashy in my opinion I love how it came out, I love that it makes me think of my darling Tyler and I know he'll love it for Valentine's Day!!!
