Challenge #3

This time I decided to join the folks at Oldie but a Goodie Challenge (Mom's the word) and Bugaboo Stamps Catch the Bug Challenge (anything goes).

Flower Stamp
Flower V25, BV08, V15, V04, V01, V000
Leaves YG13, YG11, YG17, YG67

I found some old hardware that I have had for probably 2 years... sheesh!  It was silver and I decided I wanted to play with my Copics and I coloured the brads and the little frame.  I decided not to stamp the MOM part and tried some hand lettering, not sure if I like it.  I also used my copic's to edge the card and the flower.  Then I had to do some drawing around the hardware as I decided to change it's colour after I had it stuck down and I kind of slipped!  OOOPS... Well it's amazing what you discover when you screw up! :)

I also decided that I want a real air system for my Copics!  I used my air tool for my stampin up pens and taped (gotta love painters tape) my Copic markers to it... ha ha if you could have seen me!  No hand to hold my paper so I was blowing it all over until I stuck it down with a wee bit of painters tape.  It was a two hander but definitely do-able in a pinch!  I couldn't just use one of my markers that actually fit in the contraption because that would have been way to easy! :)

As always my daughter was busy colouring away.  An elephant was her choice this time.  A little better than the monster.
