Love You Mum and Surprise, life too short to act normal!!

A never before used Penny black stamp (but fairly new to me) stamped
with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and a green I cant think of the name. Coloured
with copics pinks but in the Salmon/Prawn pinks.

I had to go back in once I finished colouring with a fine paint brush
and add some lines that didnt stamp. Because the ink was a pinky
colour I had to be careful with the colours so you could still see the
details of the stamp and was happy with the result.

The card stock is a bit more pink than it looks here but the light has
made it look more Salmon. I die cut with Wonky die from Stamplorations
the pink and white then the white agin to give the base, white layer, inset
the pink from original base then the white with image that I had cut again to
make it smaller. Sounds messy but theres not that many layers so still
kind of flat. Added Technique Tuesday 'Love You' backing die and gold die cut.
Finished off with 'mum' which there are few of amongst all the American Moms
and a few white shimmery sequins.

I love this cutie and whether you get her as a clear stamp from Penny Black or from Mo's Digital Pencil she comes a running with an empty bowl and you can top it up with a few

different fillers : cherries; sundae; porridge; hearts; clover. Its up to you
what you add. I saw Therese's card over at Lost in Paper where she used this little
missy so perfectly, love her design. but I had that day printed up my copies
to use and they held a Banana Split and thats exactly what she's doing. She has
scored the whole bowl and is on the run.

Coloured with copics and a bit of Glossy Accent on the cherries.
Die cut 'Surprise' from ??? and a sentiment I seem to use quite a bit.
I think its my mantra 'Life's too short to act normal'. Something my
mum  and a few other family members (ohh okay they all) seem to think 
about me.

Time to add to some challenges before they close (then Im off to eat
that Banana Split). Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you 
come and visit again soon.


Absolutely stunning inspiration from
Jenni Murray. My inspiration: the flower
the layers with the wonky die cut, 
die cut love sentiment.

Score to be interpreted by me. First thought was scoring the card stock; score in sport;
score in lov no, no, no get your mind out of the gutter. When I was looking through my images
 that little girl bolting with the banana split just made me think ' yahoooo she's off with
the dessert, she's scored'.Thats my story anyway.

Third card in this challenge.

Super fabulous Aileen! Oh you do make me laugh, who wants to 'act normal' anyway, but a whole bowl of icecream and I don't think I'd be acting normal either lol. Isn't she fabulous, you have coloured her to perfection!

I understood your interpretation of score as soon as I saw that cheeky little gal running off with that sundae. That's totally something I would have done! :) Gorgeous coloring on her and thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
