…or not. Our theme this week at the Drunken Stampers Challenge Blog and Crafting Lounge of Destiny (!) is “Sunshine.”As you can see, I sort of turned it on its head and made a melancholy little card, mostly because every time I tried to think of a way to approach this topic, Bill Withers kept popping into my mind. Here’s he is now, so you can sing along:
Is he awesome, or what?
I used a Stampotique image called “Oh, Joy” for the little guy, but cut off his hat, which looked a bit too Christmas-y for this design. He’s colored with Copic Sketch Markers. His lady love’s photo is from Tim Holtz’s Lost and Found Paper Stash. The background is gray cardstock onto which the text was inkjet printed. It’s overstamped with the raindrops (I’ve had that stamp for a gazillion years and have no idea where it came from). The heart was cut free-hand from a scrap of Tim’s paper, then torn town the middle. Stormy Sky Distress Ink was used to make a deep gray border.
Wait’ll you see the cool and truly Sunshine-y art my Drunken Stampers teammates created for this challenge. Theirs is collectively far more upbeat. And, you’re cordially invited to join us and share your own sunshine-themed (or anti-sunshine-themed) work of art at the Lounge anytime between now and next Friday night. We’d love to see your brilliance!
