Laugh till you pee!
I absolutely loved this image, so when we got the opportunity to work on Bloobel Stamps for the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge this month… it was no brainer. For someone like me who has a “quirky” strange sense of humor, this image has so many possibilities to create unique and fun sentiments for cards or other projects.
I’m not a huge fan of overly fussy cards, for myself …. it’s just not something that comes naturally to me. I love seeing the work other people do, but it’s not something that I can really translate over well in my own work as a general rule. I tend to get my inspirations from the images I use and let them dictate the direction I go in. And since my sentiments are usually inspired by the images….I like to keep the projects pretty CAS so the image and humor are the main focus.
I’m also not a die hard card maker, so I love to play around making magnets and framed art and notebook covers etc… things that tend to have a longer shelf life and won’t get shoved in a drawer at best….and the trash at worst LOL.
I also recently got involved in something called Abandoned Art which is a lot of fun and non card projects are great for that too. I would image this one, or at least a copy of this one will find itself into my AA bucket to be enjoyed by some random person at some stage this year. I confess I really like how this one came out and I am not sure I want to give away my original lol. I think she will end up hanging in my new craft room when we move later this year.
She was printed on 110lb Georgia Pacific, I am a bit of a rebel, I don’t buy marker specialty paper. This and the Neenah 110lb suits my style and my needs for most coloring projects… when I want specialty paper, it’s more likely to be canvas paper, inkjet watercolor paper, printable polysilk, or velvet paper…. occasionally shrinky dink..or a bed sheet… yes I did say bed sheet and yes I have printed on it LOL.
She’s colored with a mix of Chameleon pens, Zig Kurecolor and The Tim Holtz Ranger distress pens and the sentiment is straight from my own warped mind and was added to the digi before printing.
If I keep her she will be matted and mounted in a simple black frame… if I abandon her for someone else to find… she will most likely be framed… or made into a notebook cover. I guess we shall find out 🙂
She could quite easily be a card front… but I’m just not feeling it for this project. She deserves to be seen and enjoyed for more than 5 minutes:)
FOOT NOTE :
and she did indeed.. become a notepad LOL…
I scanned the original and reprinted her on canvas paper, laminated it and then added in pages with random little fun stamps on some of the corners… the back page was elongated to include the inspirational ” Live Love Laugh Stamp ” and she is indeed going in my Abandoned Art Bucket… along with the other copy I printed on Canvas… who will probably become a magnet 🙂
