Fancy Sunbonnet Bride

At Little Miss Muffet Challenges this fortnight we have a dainty challenge for you to take on and one that I always find difficult to master.  The theme is "White on White" but you're image can be colored if you want to add some color to your project.  I've been wanting to use Fancy Sunbonnet Bride for a while and thought this is the perfect challenge to use on it.  However, doing it completely white on stark white wasn't what I was in the mood for.  So I tweaked the colors a little into the cream spectrum and this is what I came up with...

The rubber stamps I used is Fancy Sunbonnet Bride from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and was colored with Copic E50, E51, E53 and a little E44.  I also used the Birds on a Wire Metal Die from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and double cut it out of felt.  Then I used some of the birds from one piece and added them to this project - they reminded me of doves and I wanted to pair some of them up... since it was a wedding card and all.

The rubber stamp can be found in the LMMS Store along with a bunch of new products that were added this month!!  This "White on White" challenge is at the LMMS Store Blog and be sure to check out all the other projects - you might be surprised, as I was, at how easy the challenge can be!

Animal Cracker Circus Elephant

Moan and groan... I hate feeling miserable.  But I don't think anyone likes feeling miserable!  One of the disadvantages to living in a different climate than what you grow up in are the unexpected seasonal allergies.  Not everyone has them, I'm sure, but I do. :(

Anyway, I can still post a project I made a while back and if I fake it long enough then I'm sure to make it.  After all, Moms aren't allowed to be sick!

The image on this card is Imaginisce Animal Cracker Circus Elephant and was colored with Le Plume alcohol markers.  I hope you like.  ;)
