Howdy all and welcome back for my 3rd week as Melanie's guest designer! I can't believe its been 3 weeks, and then only one more...:(. I have enough Little Tees made up to last for, oh, about 2 months at least of posts! LOL! They are sooo much fun to make and design! I will glimpse something on TV and think, oh, I can do that on a Little Tee! Am I obsessed or what? I have a my cigar box just full of the tees I have made up, one day they will ALL be made into cards. Ok, on to the card for today!
Does anybody remember THIS shirt? Weellll, couldn't leave out the girls!
What inspired both of these shirts actually was my BIL AND SIL. They came over one day in matching camouflage shirts, lol! She had on a pink one like this...I've never been much of a fan of camouflage, but the pink was too cute! For the solid pink shirt, I just colored it with my copic markers (hint: to get a good even coverage on large areas, just keep going over it, till it saturates through on the back, that way you know you have enough color on it!), then just drew a little line and added some brads as black buttons. For the hangers, I took my fun wire bought at Michael's and followed around Mel's hanger in the stamp set for the pattern. This wire is VERY flexible and soft, so it was easy to bend. Strung some more fun wire between the eyelets also for them to hang on. The brads were made the same way as the boy ones, just used my copics in the same colors as on the Tee! All done! (Well, mostly, lol) Stamped the butterfly from the set, used spica glitter pens on it and cut out...used my circle nesties with the sentiment and layered a few times. Also did a bit of scoring with my scor-pal and then used a piece of vellum over it just for fun, little extra added detail, lol.
Whew! Didnt mean for that to be so long! If you stuck through it, THANK you so much for putting up with my long-winded self! LOL! Be sure and stop back next week for my final (sad face) week as Mel's guest designer! I have been so honored and humbled for this position...and have thoroughly enjoyed it! How could I not, with such an awesome stamp set!
