Toaster Image (debuted at CHA 07) by Sunshine Designs (available in the US only through American Art Stamps), Long Skinny Oval by A Muse Art Stamps; Fabriano Mediovalis Reply Card, plus scrap remnant; Black Pigment Ink; Creamy Caramel Classic Ink by SU!; Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in Ice Blue; Clear Embossing Powder; Derwent Watercolor Pencils; AquaPainter (SU!); Pigma Micron Pen (for sentiment); Ric Rac by May Arts; Sakura Quickie Glue Pen; Prisma Glitter Ultrafine Multi-Iridescent
I black embossed the toaster and quickly watercolored it in. I cut a slit into one of the toaster slots with an X-acto knife, and then free-hand cut a tiny piece of toast from a scrap of vanilla card stock, to insert into it, sponging it so it would look toasted . . . After I trimmed the toaster out, it looked too flat and one dimensional on the card, so I stamped the skinny oval with chalk ink to give it a shadow to sit upon and then 3D mounted it with foam mounting tape.
The heat waves rising up were hand-drawn and the sentiment was hand-lettered, as I didn't have any stamp that remotely said what I needed.
The ric rac was glued on by first running it through my Xyron 1.5 (the little "X" machine); after applying it to the card front, I trimmed off the ends, and then used an adhesive eraser to remove any excess adhesive along the edges of it.
Thanks for lookin'! Ü
