As always, I am completely in love with the new stamps by Annie Rodrigue!! For my card today, I combined two new stamps...Danny and Joanie! I'll let you know a little something about me...I LOVE musicals!! Grease just happens to be on my list of favourite musicals...it's so much fun to sing along with! I think super-cool Danny and sassy Joanie look all set to break into a rendition of "You're the One That I Want"!! "I got chills, they're multiplyin', and I'm losin' control. Cause the power you're supplyin'...it's electrifyin'!" hehe (Are you all groovin' in your seats and singing along with me??!!) Miss Joanie certainly is "electrifying" in that too-hot-for-words outfit!! The striped paper is from My Mind's Eye, the black and white swirly paper is from Karen Foster and the red paper is from Pink Paislee. I used Spellbinders Lacey Squares for the frame behind Danny and the sentiment (which comes with Joanie) was matted on a Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio.
The images were stamped on Neenah Smooth Cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. I cut smokin' Joanie out and popped her up on foam squares outside of the main image panel just to add a bit of visual interest. I altered her eyes a bit, and gave her some pretty baby blues. :) Joanie comes with two sentiments..."I dig you!" and "You're the cat's pajamas!".
Copics: Skin: Eooo, E00, E11, E21, R20 Hair: E50, Y21, Y26, E33, E35, E37, E59, YR31 Clothes: R32, R35, R46, R59, 100, C9, C5, C3, C1, C00
Here's a closer look at Danny...he's so COOL! Danny comes with two sentiments as well...."You ain't nothin' but a hound dog!" and "Hey Daddy-O!"
Copics: Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20 Hair: 100, C9, C5, C3, C1, B60 Pants: B000, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99 Shirt: C00, C1, B60 Jacket: 100, C9, C5, C3, C1, B60 Bike: R32, R35, R46, R59, 100, C9, C5, C3, C1, C00, B60, YR31, Y21 Ground: W7, W5, W3, W1, W00 (Sky was done with Stormy Sky Distress Ink, a makeup sponge and a cloud template)
