Hello everyone! It's time for another party, and this time I planned ahead. I was so sad when the last two parties snuck up on me and I was so swamped with work that I didn't have any more time to create anything. This month's theme is very practical, because I always find myself running out of these... Birthday. Yep, those I never have on hand. My mum also decided to commission a card for a one year old boy. So I thought I better pull out my Half-pint Heroes...
Stamps: (Way Out West, Half Pint Heroes) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock -Kraft) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin - No. 11 Brown Sugar) Ranger; (Versamark) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (3/8" Topnotch Twill Tape - Fine Linen) Papertrey Ink; (Yellow Airmail Washi) Freckled Fawn
All this new grunge hitting Waltzingmouse Stamps, made me want to make a "dirty" background. I tried stamping off the mountain range from Way Out West, and then stamping onto the card stock to get the lighter ones towards the top.
I colored this rocket up in some bright yellows & orange, and thought the yellow airmail washi could also double as "construction / warning" tape to draw some attention to the sentiment. I think it goes quite well with the rocket.
I also stamped the a sentiment on the twill ribbon. Twill by itself is great, it can be dressed up, or dressed down. It also acts like a blank canvas (especially the Fine Linen twill), don't you think?
So, I'm off to head to bed, but can't wait to see your lovely creations soon...Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of what's left of this month! Summer is flying by so quickly, how will you make use of the remaining months?
