Hello fellow stampers!
I'm on the home stretch for Easter cards, what with the big day coming up this weekend. Luckily this week's Farm Fresh challenge over at TGF is all about Easter as well. I started off with an idea to alter a Bean stamp by adding Easter Anya's rabbit ears to her but then I was wishing I had a boy Bean so that I could change things up a bit. Sadly there aren't any boys though so I continued on with my first idea. But once I got her done I started looking at all of my Bean stamps and found a couple that with just a bit of tweaking could be altered into little Boy Beans fairly easily. So of course you know I had to give it a go. I grabbed Bright Bean and wiped away her clothes and eyelashes before stamping her then drew in a smart Easter outfit for my new Bean. I just colored him up and trimmed off the long braids when I fussy cut him out and viola! I'm so happy with how he turned out that I couldn't wait to share so my initial girly Bean alteration will have to wait 'til tomorrow.
I paired this spiffy little dude with more Doodlebug paper from the Easter Parade collection. I love it because one little piece of paper and I've got an entire card pretty much ready to go. All I had to add was my Bright Boy Bean, that 'happy' die and a few enamel sprinkles... oh, and Easter Anya's basket of eggs too. Now that I've done this alteration I'm dying for a few official Boy Beans to join the TGF family... fingers crossed! Who's with me? :)
Ok, I'll see ya tomorrow with more Easter fun.
