Hey ICADians, here are my days 3 & 4 cards. When I saw Snoopy as the prompt for day 3, I about squealed! I love Snoopy and all things Peanuts. I have some stamps but rarely pull them out. Strange...I know.
Carly is joining the fun. She loves Instagram and had to join. Since she no longer has a blog, I know she'll add to Instagram. She may get a guest appearance (if she's nice) here. I hope she sticks to it. She really is a great artist and has a very creative mind.
I spritzed the card in water and then painted green and blue watercolor on it. Once dried, I stamped Snoopy. I stamped Snoopy again on white cardstock, fussy cut him and placed him right on top of the other stamped image. (I wanted Snoopy to be white.). I used a fine point BIC pen to draw a messy border. I knew I wanted to write a quote/sentiment, but didn't know what. As I was sitting there pondering, I noticed the name of the stamp is "Happy Mail", there you have it - inspiration hit. LOL. I used a Sharpie to write it and highlighted with my white Signo marker. And then, since my philosophy with art is everything needs a little yellow...I spritzed a water/paint concoction on it. Simple, but I love it.
I know I have a typewriter stamp and knew I'd use it for today's index card. I gesso'd the card, added old olive ink refill drops and sprayed it with water. It covered the whole card. Once dried, I added some Pumpkin Pie ink drops here and there with spritzed water. Then I stamped the typewriter to the right side and ghost stamped around the card. I added the XOXO's all over. Added the sentiment. I also spritzed some watered down acrylic paint and splattered all over the card.
