Two weeks ago Jillian challenged the Prettie Girls to "make it new". Take one of your old unused stamps or stamp sets and ink 'em up. So I was thinking about digging out some old SU! sets that I haven't used in a while when I remembered a plastic container of stamps I bought years ago one by one when I first started stamping. And yikes do I ever have quite a few cuties that have been very very neglected including this adorable moose from Whipper Snapper Designs (I didn't even know I owned a stamp by them!). I also found a never used mini Disney alphabet set from EK Success... although it's all inky now!
Card notes: The moose was stamped in Black StazOn on watercolor paper and painted with Classic reinkers and an Aqua Painter. I then doodled a bit of ground with a black pen and outlined the image with a Copic marker. Next I stamped the sentiment "moose you" with the Disney alphabet set in Basic Gray Classic ink on a scrap of Certainly Celery. The sentiment was punched out with the small oval punch, a couple small holes punched on the left side and a piece of linen thread tied through them before adhering to the main image. A couple 1/4" circle holes were adhered to the upper right and then brads stuck through them. To finish the main image was layered on a 4" square of Chocolate Chip before adhering to the River Rock card base with dimensionals. The finished card size is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4". Now I really need to send this off in the mail along with the last couple of challenge projects! I am so behind in my mailings!
