Did you enjoy the Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop?? If you missed my post, you can find it here. I had a great time look at everyones blogs and seeing all of their favorites.
When I first saw the Spiffy Scooters set by Paper Smooches, I had to have it. I don't know why but something about it drew it in. I was sitting at my desk the other day staring at the set deciding what I wanted to do with it, when I noticed a pair of eyes staring back at me. Can you see them...?
Well, once i noticed them, I knew I had to use the scooters to create a face of some sort. Then today, I read over at the Paper Smooches blog about their July Sparks Challenge so I took some inspiration from the color combos and the sketches for this month:
I used the color combo in the far right column and the lay out in the bottom left corner to create this card -
I started with the pink card base. Added a chocolate brown panel with strips of purple/wine colored washi tape. Then finished it off with my teal scooter turned monster. His face is a Spellbinders Blossom Two die. The eyes are the scooter's wheels :-) AND his eyebrows are the sides of the scooter that is in the bottom left corner of the set. When it was all put together, I thought he looked like a perfect creature for a get well card, so I added the Get Well sentiment from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler.
And because I had so much fun making this little guy, I went ahead and made another little card -
