Tub Piggies!!!

Hello stampin' friends!!! You ARE my friends you know.....my invisible friends!! Heehee! Thanks for stoppin' in!! I have a cute little card to show you and a question for you!!!

Firstly, a super-nice lady I know loaned me some of her High Hopes Rubber Stamps to play with until I get some of my own as a Design Team member. So this is a card made using the stamp called 'Good Clean Fun', or as I like to call it, Tub Piggies!! Isn't it just the cutest image??



I stamped the image with black Stazon ink on Whisper White SU cardstock and coloured it in using my SU markers. Then I added some highlighted spots on the bubbles with my white Signo gel pen and some sparklies with my Stardust Sakura gel pen. I added the sentiment, 'What are friends for?' with my Karen Foster Snap Stamps and doodled around the frame. It looked great, but it needed something more.....so I went over all the bubbles and water with my Versamark marker and embossed it all with clear embossing powder. Not sure if you can see it much in the photo, but it's all shiny and wet looking in real life!! I used some pink unknown cardstock which was 12x12 (this is a 6x6 card) and then Bliss Blue cardstock which is retired. The patterned paper is from the DCWV Spring Stack and the main image is matted on Pale Plum and popdotted. The ribbon is polka dotted organdy ribbon which I picked up out of a bin somewhere with a cute little rhinestone flower on top!!

Now for the question!!! As you can see by my counter, I am approaching the 15,000 visitor mark and you KNOW there will be some Kimmie's Kandy involved in celebrating!! I would like to make it a sort of stamping and cardmaking challenge, so my question to YOU is: would you like it to be a themed challenge, a sketch challenge, a colour comination challenge.......what?? Let me know what type of challenge appeals to you and I'll see what I can come up with!!! When I hit the 15,000 mark, I will post the challenge and then everyone can create a card and email me a pic and I will post them on my blog!! Then someone will win some Kimmie's Kandy!! Sound like fun??!! Of course it does!! So leave me a comment and share your thoughts.

As for a challenge, I'm partial to either color or sketch challenges but I'm sure whatever you od, it'll be tons of fun.

Sooooo cute!! I have to have that stamp! great job!

Alex said...

From a person who doesn't live in US or Canada point of view I would like it to be a sketch challenge, cause then we can use whatever card/ink we have on hand and it wouldn't matter.

Such a cute card! I've got a think for polka dot ribbon and you used it beautifully! I'm always up for a challenge. Doesn't matter what kind, I just like to play!

What an adorable image! You did a really good job with all the extra little touches!

I love your card, very cute! I think a theme challenge would be fun :)

Paula said...

Sketch challenges are fun and so are color challenges so I would go with either of those rather than a theme and some people may not have any stamps to go with a theme unless it is a floral theme. Most own some type of floral stamps. Now, off subject. I truly enjoy your creativity. IT is fuuunnnn to see what you will come up with next. Happy Stamping

Absolutely adorable card. That stamp is on my wish list!
As for the challenge, I think a sketch would be good. I love seeing your layouts and would like to try out one of your sketches!
