Good morning everyone! Happy Friday! I know I've been very quiet - my mom and dad came for a visit...I haven't seen them since early Fall so it had been WAY too long. They came for just under a week (not long enough!) and we were very busy visiting and all kinds of fun things. Phew! What a whirlwind. They left yesterday afternoon - that was pretty rough. :( But I'll see them this summer so it won't be nearly as long as last time. And it's not winter! Yay!
Today we are bringing you a new challenge over at Wags 'n Whiskers. This challenge is for Banners & Bunting. Let's see those great dies and shapes on your lovely creations! Don't forget, there are FREE STAMPS up for grabs! Link up on the W'nW blog post!
Here is my contribution, featuring Super Ryan:
Isn't he a doll? Love it! I used this week's Mojo Monday (Mojo Monday #395) for my sketch, and I pulled the colors from the House of Cards challenge. The Mojo was a Tall & Skinny, which is NOT my forte, but because it's outside my comfort zone, of course I had to try it! The House of Cards colors were perfect for a bright, fun, boy card. I did not actually enter the challenge though, because my post didn't go live until May 1st. Oops! Still, I am pleased I chose these colors for Mr. Ryan! Here is my inspiration:
This card is 4.25" x 7". I don't have those AWESOME banner dies yet that seem to be popping up everywhere, so I had to create my own banner piece. Ryan is colored with various Copic markers. For some reason my photo just wanted to be dark, but the colors are very bring in person. The stars in the upper corner are brads. I substituted a punched star for the tag piece on the sketch.
