I spent a good part of yesterday putting together a light box. It has been on my "To Do" List forever and I finally got it done. I'm just testing it out today so bear with me as I learn how to use the thing! It seems SO strange not to have our back yard and our neighbours' back yards in the background LOL! The picture seems a bit dark to me too, so I think I need some stronger light bulbs as Photoshop didn't fix the issue either. This will definitely be a trial and error exercise for a few days and if anyone has any tips, I'm all ears :D
Today's guest Mojo Monday sketch designer is Mary Fish. She has an amazing blog and I just love her work. Check out her blog if you have a moment, you won't be disappointed.
When I first say this sketch, I was going to use a sentiment in the oval, but decided to go with an image instead. I dug through my stamps and found my Wild About You set. I just LOVE this set. Each animal has a personality of its own and they are just too darn cute!! I settled on the lion because I need to make a Valentine's Day card for my little guy. He is my happy kid, always smiling and he definitely enjoys life to the fullest.
I stamped the lion image twice and used the second image to cut out his head so I could pop it up. I embossed the Saffron panel with my Hearts embossing folder and clear embossed the paw prints on the rust panel. This is actually a dog print stamp, but I think it works just fine :D I matted things with Chocolate Chip and then added the little bird on the lion as he was just to plain looking up there all by himself. FInished things off with a bit of brown satin ribbon and I now have a card for my "little lion" LOL!
Thanks for popping in today and I hope you have a great week!
