Happy Hump Day!

Happy Hump Day everyone! It is Wednesday and I am hoping this day goes by fast. I am looking forward to the WEEKEND and Wednesdays always seem to drag on for me. Today was not a particular good day for me. I received a jury duty summons in the mail and found out someone I knew when I was young passed away.

Today I am sharing a fun, quick card I created using an Inkadinkado stamp set that I bought on clearance at JoAnn's for $.97. It was a steal!! I actually bought it more for the sentiments then the images but I decided for this card I would try one of the images out.

I decided to make the image on this card the focal point. I started out by stamping the lizard image in black permanent ink and then coloring it in with Copic Markers.

I could have colored the lizard green but wanted to mix it up a little and make it a bright color. I used a range of yellow/red hues with a little bit of red. 

I then highlighted the image with some purple.

To finish him off, I went over him with a Wink of Stella glitter pen and used glossy accents on his spots. I think he came out cute!!

I was originally going to make this a one layer card but par for the course, I got ink on my hands and it rubbed off on the left side of the card so I had to cut the card panel down. I used this mistake to layer the panel over a piece of Washi tape and a punched border.

I used some foam adhesive to give it some dimension. The last step was to glue a few iridescent sequins onto the card front. Now I have to figure out who I want to send this card too. I think it came out really cute for a $.97 stamp set.

That is all for today. Thank you for stopping by.

Oh, I wish I had seen this earlier, Nora. If you read this comment soon enough, you could edit your post and enter this week's CASology challenge: JOKE. I think your card qualifies!!

It is so fun and funny!! And while I love a OLC, I have to say that border and that sort of Southwestern Washi tape design really add impact to your sweet little lizzie!!

I think anyone with a birthday would get a kick out of it and love it!! I hope you have a great day! Hugs, Darnell
