I Might be a Prickby Stephanie Low
I am not actually a prick - but that title was dope right?!
Ok but seriously, it was. Also, sometimes I am a prick so it works.
Anyhow.. How are we today? I am well. I spent my day crafting and that is always a good way to spend a morning
I used the cutest little succulent inspired snarky stamp set called Not a Hugger and I will say honestly, these cards SUCC... Just kidding, they don't, but I had to insert one pun for the sake of it.
I used the cutest little background for my Thorny card. The stamp packaging was this cute black white and blush situation that was BEGGING to be included in my card so of course I obliged.
I simply layered all the elements I wanted and then stamped away. I used a "no line" technique so that I could "color" the succulent images with a good drawing pencil and then topped it off with a splash of colorful embellishments.
I figure I will send this to someone at some point - but someone who is okay with me expressing my "thorniness"
for the Don't be a Prick card I used a simple non repeating pattern background with my "no-line" stamp pad and then roughly colored them without worrying too much about precision for a simpler look. I outlined their pots in pen and threw a sentiment on there at the end. Of course I HAD to embellish her with cute little dots!
Thoughts? Ideas? Critiques? I am literally talking (typing?) to myself.
What I learned...
+ Don't be a prick on the blog - no one likes it. I'm not as cute and clever as I think I am. Maybe...
+ Succulent puns are abundant
+ Using my drawing pencils to color in a stamp is super fun and I will be doing it again!
+ Always use the packaging in the projects!
Its that time again, time to leave you the hell alone and time for me to put away this hoard of craft supplies in an office that is too small to hold it all (Ill do it tomorrow...)
