Today (or yesterday now) is National Scrapbooking Day and I am choosing to celebrate it in a very rebellious way...I am making cards for our troops with Operation Write Home "Be A Rebel" Virtual Card Making Party.
Challenge #8 - Use Blue and Grey by Allison G. in TX
Blue and grey...what a great theme to go with our VCMP Rebel theme! But grey...really?!? I had to chuckle because I was pretty sure I didn't even have any grey card stock, and I was right. So...as I was looking around my craft area wondering what in the world I would do for this image, colored by my BFF Lucy, and what do you know? It has both blue and grey in it! Eureka!
The patterened paper I picked up over a year ago at either JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby specifically to use with this digi but I was always too afraid to try coloring him. Lucy to the rescue! She loves to watercolor and I love to let her! LOL This adorable little guy is from Bugaboo Stamps but unfortunately has be retired. It is difficult to tell but I attached the focal piece with dimensional mounting tape to give it even more dimension. The silver eyelets in the corners were thrilled to see the light of day and do a good job of pulling it all together.
