This time - it's Birthday Delivery.
I sat there at the table at CentreStage, staring at the set, and the first card that popped into my mind was the one I'm sharing today.
I spent a lot of time in D-hall in my youth, as you know.
And I don't regret one second of any of it, because whatever I did to earn those mind-numbingly boring hours I would totally do again. So there, D-hall monitors - take that!
So when I saw the image of the little girl, I instantly knew I was going to put her in a corner. The image cried out for it. Cracks me up even looking at it in this post.
I stamped her in black, and then colored her with Prismacolor Pencils. Because that obscures the lines, I left her set up in my MISTI and when I was done coloring her, I overstamped her on top of the colored image, and heat embossed it with clear to bring back the stamp detail. (Clear embossing because the black ink won't really cure on top of the waxy pencil, and you risk smudging.)
After she was finished, just took a ruler and drew the lines for the corner with a mechanical pencil, and then shaded the lines with a grey Prismacolor pencil.
I went back and forth among some real contenders for the sentiment - "Faith is trusting God even when you don't understand His plan" from Artistically Asian, and "Oh Snap!" from Mr. Funny Bones were both in the running.
But I settled on Rose Wonder instead. Hilarious.
What were YOU sent to the corner for when you were a kid? Anything fun? Anything you'd totally do again? :)
PS - my Altenew winner announcement is late! So sorry about that - I've traveled every week in April and I'm behind on life. But congratulations to my winner! Please contact me through the form on the right side of my blog and I'll give you redemption instructions, Julie!
