A Second Post for Today :)

Hi - It's me again, can you believe it? Well, this morning's card was not my favorite.....there I said it, out loud :) I like it okay, but to me it needed some more colors. If it would have been an elegant card, I would have liked the fewer colors, but this is whimsical and to me that means COLOR! :)

So, I tried again. This one uses navy blue background with some patterned papers that I picked up at Archiver's the other day. I was in the Hot Spot, where everything is $1.99 and they had these Me&MyBigIdeas paper stacks. They are 5" X 7" pieces of patterned papers. This set is called "Modern Milan". I think they're fun :)

Anyway, I stamped Louie in Versafine Onyx black and colored him with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. Then I added Gold Glimmer Blingz to the gold as well as on his hat. He is pop-dotted onto the green dp. I used this really cool ribbon to tie the bow and photo corners to help attach the green dp. Then I put Dew Drops from the Water collection in the corners.

I even decorated the inside of this one. I strip of the cardstock, a strip of the dp and I stamped the shamrock in Versafine onyx black and cut it out and adhered it to the strip.

I hope you liked this second rendition of the Louie and Louie Too sets that will be released Monday, March 2nd. :) I hope you're having a great day!
