KK Challenge 167 - Fussy Cuttin'
Another awesome day in Ontario today...NOT! It was cold and kinda rainy/kinda snowy...it was a gross day! and it all started with a trip to the DENTIST! YAY!!! not by favorite place to be that's for sure, luckily it was only a cleaning and not a checkup so no nasty fluoride.
After that life harrowing experience was over, I got to spend the afternoon scrapbooking with my cousin Brooke. We had a fun day, she was very productive and got all of her photos scrapbooked (the ones she brought with her).
I was able to get some cards done myself which was nice considering I haven't been in the mood much to do any card making.
Here is one of Kraftin Kimmie's new releases Sherlock Holmes!!! The challenge this week on her Challenge Blog was Fussy Cuttin' which was submitted by Amanda.
Here is my entry for this challenge:
I just love this stamp and it is such a great MANLY stamp. I find it so hard to find good manly stamps....as I am sure most of you do as well.
For this card I used some old Close to my Heart paper I had lying around...sad that I can't even remember what paper package it came from. I am trying to use up all my old paper and it seems some days I won't ever get through it.
I also used American Crafts twine and "spinach" glitter tape, and Pebbles pearl candy dots.
Here is the close up of Mr. Holmes himself...
Skin: E00, E11, E000
Hat & Cape: E29, E35, E39
Smoke: C1, C3, C5
Pipe: C5, W1
Hair: W1, W2, W4, W6
Coat: YG63, YG67
Background: YR20, YR21
He is so distinguished.
Since the challenge was fussy cuttin' you will notice that i have completely cut him out and he is pop dotted on the card so that he stands out even more!
Well hope you have enjoyed!
