Card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

This little guy, to me anyway, is hilarious! He looks like the most unwilling partier ever!!

He's from my sheet of rubber (see sidebar) FAMILY PETS. See post below, titled Exciting News, for the whole story...

This technique is called Warhol 1, from the Feb/Mar 2005 Technique Junkie newsletter. It's the first time I've used it and I love it! Quick, not messy, no special materials required, will suit any stamp depending on the colors you use, and you can make the most of a single image. It's a winner!! LOL Check out the issue for two more variations on this technique.

Okay, so to make your life easier if you try this one, let me tell you - my panels measure 2" x 1 3/4" and fit on an A2 card front perfectly with the borders shown. I stamped my images and then trimmed, but you can just as easily do it the other way too. I used Versafine black ink because I love how truly black it stamps and it doesn't lose fine detail. After it was dry I used a Sakura white gel pen to color in his eyes. I used a Hero Arts stamp for his hat - stamping the text then cutting a triangle at an angle. I edged it with black and was going to add a pom-pom but didn't have any tiny enough on hand.

I stamped the sentiment (PrintWorks) on vellum, then attached it with two coordinating brads.

Thanks for visiting!
