Today's post is inspired by two other card makers. Back in November, fellow SugarPea Teamie, Lisa Lara, gave me a giggle and knocked my socks off when she used SugarPea Designs Layered Treat Labels to create these adorable light bulb tags. I was awed by her creativity and her ability to think outside of the box. At the idea of a light bulb, all I could hear in my head was Gru's voice (from the Despicable Me! movies) saying, "Light Bulb!" - which is what sent me into giggles. I filed the idea away in my cluttered brain until today. . . when I was playing along with this week's Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. Natalie Dever is the honoree, and her card, Light Magical, caught my eye.
I used Lisa's idea of creating the light bulb and grabbed my Copics to add some shading in the bulb and at the base. Planning to use the sentiment from Have An ICE Day, I decided to create a lightbulb filament by just inking up two small parts from the penguin stamp. I used the tip of his fishing pole for the straight part and the small oval between the fish's hole and the tree to create the other part! I was proud of myself!! After plenty of fun using these in a conventional way, it's super exciting to think about stretching stamps in a whole different way! Thanks for the inspiration Lisa and Natalie.
