It's what's on the inside that counts......

This week the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers want to see images only, no sentiments, on the outside of our cards. Now I very often make cards with no sentiment - probably more often than not - but being an awkward bu$$er as soon as I'm told not to use something I want to use it. So I had to discard about a dozen ideas until I stopped and thought - no sentiment on the outside doesn't stop there from being one on the INSIDE, does it?

For the outside of the card, I used a Paper Artsy stamp for the background, lining it up with a stamp positioner and filling the whole surface. It's not a stamp that's intended to join up to form a repeat image, so it doesn't line up 100% but as I knew I was going to add more stamping over it that didn't worry me too much. Then I used old unmounted stamps from my stash to add the stars and champagne bottles. I think the overall effect looks very much like the way your head feels after a few too many drinks. or is that just me?

The image is from the same Paper Artsy set. I think it used to say Movie Star along the bottom but I didn't like that bit so I chopped it off and threw it away.


Then I moved on to the inside - I knew what I wanted to say but I didn't have the stamp to say it, so I made a computer generated message, fiddling about with the RGB settings until I got the shade of green I wanted:


I know *exactly* who I'm going to send this to.....
