Club Kid...Life is what you make it

Hello everyone!

Today I have a card to share.... YAY! I made this last night while I was trying to find things to keep myself awake due to only having 2 1/2 hours of sleep in two days thanks to my outside job...but that is a whole other story that I won't bore you with here! After working 2 - 12 hour shifts (7am - 7pm Tuesday then... 3am to 3pm...Wednesday and 2 1/2 hrs of sleep in between) this is what I made....



It is an easel card that I made for the Whimsy Stamps Challenge Blog

Whimsy Stamps is one of my favorite companies (that is why I carry them in my store obviously - LOL) Their artist line up is AMAZING! Each has their own unique line with images that are so fun to create with.

One of my favorite lines is from the KennyK Collection...the Glam Gang Series! I used the Club Kid image for my card. I colored it using my Spectum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers on the Crafter's Companion Cardstock and then cut her out so she could be popped against the background to give it a more 3D look. I completed my easel card background and bottom of my card by stamping it with the Street Art Background from the Raindrop Echo Designs Sentiments Collection. This was just made for this series I swear :)

My ticket saying is also from the Raindrop Echo Designs Sentiments Collection and is called The Fun Life Tickets which I swear are also made for this series by KennyK!

After putting it together I felt the left side corner needed a subtle "pop" so I added the little red heart punchie. I really love how this card turned out!

Here is a close up of my Club Kid image that I colored:



I am still in the learning phase of coloring and shading with alcohol ink markers but I thought she turned out pretty good! There is an amazing and talented lady named Suzanne Dean who is my coloring hero! She has a great blog with some awesome tutorials on coloring with copics. Copics are still on my "wish list" so I just used what I have.

I hope you like the card today! I love the saying on the ticket because I needed some positive inspiration after having a stressful few days at my outside job! Makes me more determined to make my dream of turning Loves Rubberstamps into my only "job" because as the ticket says... Life is what you make it...

Happy Stamping Everyone!
