Grin card set

20 Feb

Sometimes when I’m working on a craft project, I like to listen to “books on tape”…well audio books that I find online from the library. Last night, I wanted to listen to the end of a great mystery that was intriguing me. So I stamped the “grin” image four times, picked out a few Copic Sketch colors, listened and colored.

I know it sounds kind of “cheater” to do the “audio book” thing but when I read a real book before I go to bed…I just fall asleep…and never get anywhere. So listening while I create is perfect.

I was inspired by this week’s sketch at Card Positioning System. Here is the sketch:

Since I spent a while coloring four stamped images…I decided to make a set of cards.

Each stamped and colored image was die cut with an oval and then layered onto an Aqua scalloped oval, a criss-cross of ribbon, a patterned paper mat and the white cardstock card base. Easy, fun and funky.

Here are the finished cards one-by-one:
