Here's a card share that was just pure whim indulgence for me. Just trying to amuse myself mainly. I succeed and learned a few new tricks.
I made seven of these little gems to send out to my girlfriends for Mother's Day. It's full of sass and spunk and absolutely intended to make them laugh. I think my favorite line is "Gotta go, the kids chewed through their straps again." Of course, everybody is very much a devoted mother, but sometimes we let similar thoughts be voiced when the kids and the hubbies are out of earshot.
I was faced with a bit of a challenge in that I didn't want to fully color the lady seven different times. I took the easy way out and just highlighted certain places with light aqua Copics. I like to think it keeps it looking a bit retro.
I relied heavily on the Silhouette Cameo on this project. I'm sitting here trying to intelligently, precisely, and eloquently explain how I did it, but I'm drawing a blank. It's been a long day. How about we just leave it at laughs tonight?
