A giggle for the day!

This new image from Lockhart Stamp Company has been getting a lot of attention all around the internet lately! But what really makes it is the sentiment! Doesn't it just make you giggle? I wanted to show you how I used the sentiment a bit differently; as you can see on the webview, the sentiment is two lines curved together. Karen always does such a great job making the sentiments full of fun and whimsy! But on this one, I wanted to separate them into two lines. That's when your favorite stamp positioner will really come in handy.

The key to this is to ink each line by itself and stamp it onto your positioning sheet. (I used a Memento Dew Drop pad to achieve this easily - the point on the inkpad really helps with this!) Next, align the sentiment on the positioning sheet until the angle matches your piece, then using the positioner, stamp away! Wipe off your stamp and repeat the process with the next line of the sentiment. Using this technique allows you to get more mileage from your sentiments.

The cute swimsuits were colored with summery colored Copic markers. I used the same colors behind the image for the color blocks. Fun, summery and easy!

Have a great day! It's going to be a warm one here - I might just have to do a little chunky dunkin', too! ;) Be well.
