Its that time again, the WMS blog party. I dont always get to play, but this month I made the time. I had an excuse for crafting time, I have met a wonderful group of motivated crafters and we will meet weekly -how great is that :) I look forward to participating more regularly in challenges (especially WMS) and I might even get caught up on my scrapbooking - I started Projec Life 2 weeks ago - yikes, I'm already behind ! lol Anyway, on to business .....
This month's WMS blog party has the LOVE theme ! I decided to make a card for my son. He is about to turn 11 and a really fantastic kid, I am so proud of him. As soon as I saw the little hero additions stamp set, I knew I just had to have it. I love the sentiments and will use them often to express myself to my boys xxx
( I am taking the photos at night so I dont miss the submission deadline - bit disappointed in the color in the photo, it is so much more vibrant in real life / day light. )
I coloured the boy in copics highlighting with a little prismacolor white and gel pen, paper pieced the teddy, used various Spellbinders sets - banners, majestic elements resplendent rectangles and can you see the heart peeping out from behind the boy. The small hearts in the blue heart and punched using a Creative Memories confetti heart punch. The gorgeous background paper is from a 6x6 paperpack by Crate Paper - Toy Box Collection.
Do you see the red heart ? The heart is my new found hobby - Sculpey clay. It is really easy to work with and is available in a large variety of colours and metallics. When baked it is very hard and light weight - kinda the perfect medium for making your own embellishments. Close up :
Thanks for looking. I am off to look at all the other wonderful creations on the WMS blog.
Just for comparison, I took another photo this morning, with natural light :-)
