I’m a day late for last week’s Drunken Stampers’ Challenge (as the title implies) but I’ve been picturing my card all week so I had to make it. (And the last one was clearly not the last one as an earlier blog of mine applied.) Here’s the link to the challenge so you can see the great submissions:
Drunken Stampers Challenge #134 – Enchanted | Drunken Stampers
I used my new Canon PIXMA MG8220 printer to print a bunch of photos from Times Square that I grabbed from the internet. (I LOVE this printer. It’s wireless, can print right from my phone, and prints amazing quality photos. It copies and scans, too, so the possibilities are endless. Part of the hold up in making the card was trying to get the thing set up, so it was totally worth it.)
Anyway, I cut out some buildings and cars from the photos and pasted them on a charcoal-y piece of scrapbook paper (which was pasted on a card). Then, I cut out the picture of Snow White from a Golden Book that I’ve been cannibalizing. I tried to draw a manhole for her to come out of but that part doesn’t look as good as it does in my brain. I put a couple stickers on and the text from another page of scrapbook paper. In case you haven’t figured it out, the challenge was the movie “Enchanted” and/or fairy tales (so I did both). I must say, I kinda love it (and I also loved that movie- it almost made me miss living in New York… almost).
I had an extra photo of NYC and had to make a birthday card for a friend, so here’s what I came up with. It’s her 35th. That’s a big birthday, right? Who remembers that movie with Michael J. Fox: “Bright Lights, Big City”? Another great movie.
