I really like Dustin Pike images. I didn't discover him until his stamps came to High Hopes. Of course, I was new to the stamping world and just into Stampin' Up, High Hopes and Wiff of Joy. Since then there are so many new companies and so many wonderful stamps I have discovered. Still, I enjoy Dustin Pike's whimsical images. There is a challenge on his blog for a Girly Card.
As a mom of boys, I need images that work for all the men in my life and their friends. My boys do not dig girly cards. So when my youngest was invited to a birthday party for one of the girls in his grade, he did not want to give a girly card. I made this one, but he said that that one can come from us. I had made it because the invitation she sent was pink and black. It was a Paris theme. Very pretty.
He had another design in mind.
Yes. It says "U R A monster". :-) Yes. He is my little turd. The girl is a very sweet girl. I adore her. He has a like/hate relationship with her. It is quite hilarious actually. He allowed me to keep the pink/black theme but the image was not to be girly. I think it is still girly. Don't tell him I said that.
This is High Hopes Willy One Eye illustrated by Dustin Pike. It is embossed on watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2Os.
I put some glaze on his eye, tongue and spits to make it stand out.
Other card details: Letter Stamps - SU Best Friends Lowercase; Base - SU Pink Piroutte; the Black paper is SU Basic Black emossed with Swiss Dots folder with the Cuttlebug; Buttons - PTI Sweet Blush.
Gracias for hanging out with me!
