lobster get well...



I needed a get well card. Yall I stink at them, this card is still on my desk, the person it's for is going to get well before I send it! Sheesh!
Anyhow I didn't know what stamp to use and I think the girl this is for will really like this lobste so I said to myself "Self, just use that stamp!" So I did. The lobster is Hambo Stamps and I LOVE them!!! I colored with watercolor pencil. Then I took my versafine marker (which I have because Belinda said I could do a resist technique with it and of course it didn't work, resist techniques NEVER work for me) and colored over the lobster. then put UTEE on him and heated him up. That made him all glossy. This is in a way nicer than the glossy accents I usually use because it dries right away. Course when you are a big fat slacker like me and never actually get the card in the mail it doesn't matter does it?? So then I cuttlebugged the coral paper and slapped the image on there. The phrase is by Greengrass rubber stamps. I LOVE that company too. It is actually in a dark circle on the stamp but I had this punch that would punch out just the words perfectly then layered it on a tag I did with the cuttlebug. I thought it was pretty cute. A little bit of ribbon and cool caribbean paper and I was done. (Oh I did the penwork on the scalloped oval myself)
I'm sick again can you believe it! I'm going to the Dr tomorrow. Maybe I have a parasite or something. Lets hope if I do it is one that makes me skinny with no long term negative side effects. I've already lost a bunch of weight with whatever is wrong with me. Course I feel like crap...
Oh I know this is the craft blog not the family one, but I gotta share! Ethan walks now! He's CUTE with it too.

I'm sorry the resist still didn't work for you. :( Maybe someday I can come visit and we can stamp together! :D
