The Back Stories With Darnell and Cornelia - #5 George

GEORGE


Everyone was gathering in the conference room to celebrate the boss’s birthday so George and Winnie walked down the hall together from the lab where they were assigned. George was busy looking over his shoulder at 3-year-old Winnie who had just let go of the party balloon, so he didn’t notice the pileup in front of him until after he turned the corner.


Before he could stop himself, George stepped on Imogene’s tail which made Imogene howl and fall into the wall. This allowed George a clear look ahead where he saw that Everett was lying flat out, his terrified eyes pinned on the tiniest mouse George had ever seen. Not even in the secret high-security lab.
George knew that Everett was frozen in fear and the only way to clear the hall would require him to step into Everett’s line of sight.
Slinking around Imogene’s wide hips and Everett’s flattened ears, George locked eyes with the tiny mouse. And froze.

Stamp Connection #50

Hi Everyone,

Connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Tanja from Little Art Cottage and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 2rd Sunday of the month and this is our 50th transatlantic get-together!


This time it was Tanja's turn to pick the requirements:
try a new technique
I choose the gesso resist technique that a long time ago was featured on A Blog named Hero.



It is quite easy. You take a stamp and add gesso to it. wait for it to dry and then sponge over it. Wipe the ink from the gesso with a wet rag. I used a Hero Art background stamp. The die cut is from Altenew. I die cut it with black card stock and glittered it.



Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Santa is Coming!

Hi Everyone,

As half of the year is over it is definitely time to start making Christmas cards. Jingle Belles wants to see Santas. I obliged....


I took my favorite Santa and reindeer die from Dixi Crafts and this time colored the Santa.


You see this better above. I die cut a window and stamped my favorite Christmas trees from STAMPlorations behind. Added some Stickles. The sentiment is also by STAMPlorations.


Happy Stamping!

On my last visit to Germany I could not resist to pick up this grumpy looking cat from Hein Design - a German company. I thought it would be perfect for this challenge. The background is made with a Tim Holtz stencil, the sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps.


Now I hope you will have time to

Rubber Dance - From Moo to You

Hi Everyone,

That Moo to You set is just up my alley! You can also get the stamps separately and don't have to buy the entire set, if you just fall in love with one of the cows. Thought I let you know that - just in case....


Here is the entire set:

And that's how I made this card:


I stamped the cow and the sentiment.


I took some sand paper and created graphite dust from a pencil


Took a iStencil 

and sponged the graphite mostly around the cow.


Took the stencil off. You can see that there is graphite dust on the cow, but that will easily come off with an eraser


as you can see here. I like those knead-able erasers best for that.
I then colored the cow with markers. Added Stickles to the cupcake and candles.



Don't forget about our challenge, which goes until the end of the month. Play along, if you find time!
You'll find it in the Facebook Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge and its those three colors you see below or anything goes with Rubber Dance stamps.



Happy Rubber Dancing!
