Don't Judge Me

Hey Y'all,

I definitely had  a crafty day today....after a nice cup of coffee and some you tubing, I headed off to my LSS and joined in on the fun at Copic Play Day!  I colored three images, two in the morning then one in the afternooon.  I couldn't wait to get home and make this one into a card....

I'm naming her Aunt Faye....we all have one in our family....The one that has four children but only talks about the perfect one named Marcia.  (When we all really know that Marcia is not perfect at all.)  Aunt Faye who married Uncle Stanley who never gets a word in edge wise and spends all his time out in the garage building bird houses.  Aunt Faye who thinks all her nieces and nephews need advice...

So here she is Aunt Faye






























Card Recipe:

Background: K& Company
Mats: Basic Gray
Stamps:
Don't Judge Me - River City Stamps
Brackets - Fiskars Noteworthy
"Aunt Faye" - I forgot to write it down-Oops
Colored with Copic Markers....
Ink -
Black - Crystal Pigment Ink
Distress Old Linen
Marcasite Embossing Powder

Camera - Canon 5D
Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS







If anyone knows the company that makes this stamp could you let me know....I should have written down the name....

Also, when I was making this card, I put the "Aunt Faye" image down to adhere the background to the card and it took almost 30 minutes of me searching to find it in my green scrap paper folder.  How it got in there I will never know!!!!!!!!!!!!  I tore my room apart looking for her!!!!  That Aunt Faye is nothin' but trouble.


(Just found out from some little birds.. (Thanks Linda and  Dru)....that the stamp is:
Art Impressions : Aunt Louvelle on the couch...
I knew she was somebody's aunt....LOL)




LOL,
Micki

Too funny! I lose things all the time in my room--it's such a mess! I lost a nestie once and finally found it in one of my scrap folders!LOL I now have them on my wall on a magnet sheet and have been diligent about putting it back on the wall immediately after use.

Your card is awesome! Yes, I have an Aunt Faye whose daughter can do no wrong!

What a wonderful sense of humor you have! Love Aunt Faye. I no longer have an Aunt Faye but I have an older (much older) sister, Carol. I am still laughing at that image...it is so Carol. Glad she doesn't blog....lol. BTB, me too, for the name of that stamp if anyone tells you, or you remember.
