Do YOU Moo???
The challenge over at Wednesday Stamper this week is to create eensie weensie "Moo Cards." I'd never heard of them before. LAST week's challenge was FISH, so my first thought was "I had no FISH stamps for last week's challenge, and NOW I have no COW stamps!"
But that's not what these little things are all about. They're simply created on a TINY base of 2.8" by 1.1." I created mine as little cards that open. They may be tiny, but they were a HUGE challenge for me! The Eiffel Tower card has the SU Cheesecloth stamped background underneath acetate onto which I printed the image, and stamped a 7gypsies sentiment. I also scanned my own Canadian passport and miniaturized it, and added it to the Eiffel Tower image in Photoshop.
This "Thoughts of You" card uses an image from ArtChix and two tiny Michael's stamps coloured with Sakura Glaze pens, and some freehand doodling and dots.
This pensive little girl was printed on ecru cardstock, the HA stamp is done on acetate with Top Boss Gold EP, and the "Missing You" is a mini HA stamp in Brilliance Moonlight White.
Now just for fun, I'm posting them again beside this 5 1/2" by 4 1/2" card just for comparison purposes, so you can see how TINY they are! I can see using these as little interactive surprise elements inside cards!
Such FUN challenges at Wednesday Stamper, hope you make your way over there and join in!
