So which are you? A nerd or a geek? Or neither? I like to think of myself as a well-balanced, well-rounded individual. (Well-rounded fits physically, for sure.) Of course, there are those, who know me best, that will beg to disagree. Ignore them.
I do want to tell you that my shoulder is healing quite nicely. It still has a sore spot toward the middle of my scar, but hopefully that will be gone in another week or so. It was such a relief to get those sutures out, as they were really pulling and irritating my skin. I look a bit like Frankenstein's wife, but that'll be perfect for Halloween in a few more months. And don't look now, but it will be here before you can blink your eyes! The days are simply flying by.
And before this one gets away from me, I'd best get on with my card details. I chose Jellypark Grandad, as he looks like a nerd to me. (Actually, he looks a lot like Gary, but don't tell him I said that!! Shhhhh!) I printed the old man, ahem, on MICBC. Then I colored him with Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: C2, C4, C6
Sweater: YR23, YR24, YR27
Collar: E8, YR20, YR21, YR23
I added some Wink of Stella Brush Silver to his spectacles. One word of caution: I had his head all colored and was adding this sparkle to his specs, when, (all of a sudden), a big glob plopped down on his face. Now I have to say that I was not too pleased about this. The air was really a bit blue for a minute or thirty. Hmmm. And then I proceeded to tear up the image, re-print it, and color it anew. And this time I was excruciatingly careful with my Wink of Stella, which I highly recommend to each of you. Or you may find yourself in a very blue room like I did.
I chose DP from the Bo Bunny Weekend Market collection, paired it with Stampin' Up CS, distressed it with my Zutter Distrezz-It-All, and inked it with SU ink. My die cuts were made with: MFT Fishtail Flags Stax and SCACD Classic Timepiece dies. I added some SU Linen Thread, Tim Holtz Mini Paper Clips and Muse Token, a miscellaneous word stick, ("wisdom", in case you can't see it), and a computer mouse button. And I'm off.
Before I go, I want to encourage you to check out the darling cards done by my talented teammates. And be sure to look at the creations made with Claire's fun new release images. Have a wonderful weekend!
