So it's back to the daily grind for me today. Unfortunately I was not a winner of the Mega Millions lotto drawing this past weekend so work I must. I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed for the next one. ;)
My card is for the TGF Farm Fresh challenge to CASE one of the challenge team gals who have recently completed their term. And I knew just the card that I wanted to CASE. It was back in February when I first saw how Lisa tore the corners of her paper to reveal a second print below and, even then, I knew that I wanted to give this technique a try. So I inked up Easter Anya and altered her mouth a bit by wiping away the original open one and tracing in a more closed smile. She's colored up nice and bright to go with some more of that fun Doodlebug paper that I've been enjoying lately. I kept the over-all design pretty close to Lisa's original, though I did tend to go a bit crazier with the tearing. What can I say... I really wanted to see those jellybeans, LOL!
I also ended up doing a super quick little video tutorial on how I color grass. After posting my Masa card the other day I had several questions about it and this seemed as good a time as any to share how I go about grounding character stamps in a lush yard of green grass. You can see the video here or over on the CMC blog. :)
Alrighty then, I'm audi. Catch ya later!
