Don't you love how 2 people can look at something and see 2 different things? I find this especially true with kids, and how I came up with my card today. Here's my story :)
A couple of weeks ago I posted this card using our newest release stamps...
...a fun, cute little winter scene for people fed up with snow, right? Not to my 6 year old. He took one look and asked why zombie hands were wearing mittens. As I started to explain I realized his version could make a fun card, so that's what I set out to do this week.
Here's what I came up with....
I stamped the same scene, adding a few more mittens this time using our new Skip Winter stamp and our Pine Tree Snowdrifts. I used much darker markers to color them and used grey ink sponging for my snow drifts and then added rips and stitches using a fine line black marker to try and "zombie" them up a bit. The sky was sponged with purple and blue inks and then I went over it with grey ink to darken it.
The sentiment took some cutting since I needed to use 3 separate sentiments to piece it all together.
I used the top line from the Skip Winter Greeting, the word Zombie from Zombie Brain Love greeting and the word Hugs from our Monster Hugs greeting. After I pieced it all together I stamped it in black and colored the Hugs using red, grey and black. I didn't have a piece of grey paper large enough to fit in back of the greeting so I cut the scrap I had into 4 strips and overlapped them slightly as I adhered them to an extra piece of card stock and added it in back of the greeting.
I stamped the grey background (my last piece) layer using our Versatile Background and black ink and layered it all on a folded black card.
I haven't shown it to my son yet, but I can't wait to see what he thinks about it :)
