Ok, I apparently wasn't done with the silliness because this card is completely silly too! First of all, I used a Deadbeat Designs image that completely cracks me up! Well, sort of anyway - I pulled this one out because I'm feeling like a bit of a (transplanted) Texas relic. I'll be "celebrating" my first annual 39th birthday this Sunday, and I am none too pleased about it. The clock has begun ticking - only one year left to become 40 and fabulous! ACK! Or not, if I just start celebrating my 39th birthday annually...
As for the sketch for this card - I used Maria's Mojo Monday idea but took it in my own somewhat silly direction:
Check out the historical marker, does it kinda sorta look stonelike? I tried the technique where you pour a little Copic colorless blender solution onto a rag and smoosh it onto the image you've colored. It gives it a fun look. Of course, I think all the historical markers I've seen have been metal not stone. WHATEVER!
Since I mentioned cranking up some Lyle, I feel it's my civic duty to provide some Lyle to crank. Here's a favorite, since... that's right... I'm not from Texas...
And be sure to check out my fellow Texas crafters - Mark, Betty, Tina and a new member of our merry little group, Karen. I believe a few of my other Texas friends are taking this week off - but Jennifer may have a post a little later. And of course if you ever want to join us with your own Texas-inspired creations, you're welcome to!
Until next time - Happy Stamping!
