Paper Smooches SPARKS ~ ANYTHING GOES Challenge!! =)

Pin It

Have you ever had one of those Weekends that you wished you could replay!!?? This has been one of those for me!! I have had a Migraine Headache since late Thursday and I want a Weekend Redo so I can ENJOY the BEAUTIFUL Weekend we have had!! It was 80 degrees today (Saturday)!! I LOVE Spring!! =)
So Today I have a FUN Shaker Card to share!! I just FELL in TOTAL LOVE with the Ahoy Me Hearty Stamp Set as soon as I saw it and have been dying to use it so I pulled it out and this is what I came up with!! I've used the Paper Smooches Ahoy Me Hearty Stamp Set along with the Stitched Die and Sassy Letters Die Sets!! I used Copic Markers to color my Images and then did alittle Paper Piecing/Surgery in order for it to look like the Parrot was Sitting/Holding onto the Message in a Bottle and the Gems!! I just cut along the outline of his Wing and then placed the Tail Feathers behind the Bottle lining it up to where it would have been!! I LOVE the look of dimension it adds without really any added height to the Image!! =) For my Sentiment, I stamped and Embossed the Ahoy with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and then Die Cut 3 of each of the Sassy Letters to Spell "MATEY" and glued them together to create a Thicker Word!! I wanted it to Balance out the weight of the Shaker Window and my Parrot Cluster!! I like the Visual Triangle that it creates!! I LOVE the way it turned out and hope you do too!!?? =)
I hope you'll go and check out what the rest of the AMAZING PSSPARKS DT has to share this week!!?? I KNOW they'd LOVE the visit!!
