I have wanted this Whipper Snapper Hooked Worm stamp for years, literally. And, no, I still haven't bought it. LOL. But I did get some stamped images from the Wish RAK group at Splitcoast. Woo Hoo. I was seriously excited. So I colored this last night with my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol, and put the card together this morning. I'll take it to my mom when I go to visit this evening. Hopefully she'll get a smile out of it.
I layered the image on papers from the Cutie Pie series by Stampin' Up! (Also from Wish RAK! What amazing ladies involved in that group. I'm loving it.) The sentiment is from an old, retired Stampin' Up set, Mini Mates. I've kept it all these years because there are so many versatile sentiments, and I like the small sizes. The smaller blue dots are punched from Bashful Blue card stock and covered in Crystal Effects. You can't really see it in the picture, but I also added Crystal Effects to the hook and a few air bubbles coming up from the worm to the blue dots.
Does anyone know of anything better than Crystal Effects? It looks wonderful, but my bottle is forever clogged no matter what I do. Something like Stickles, but non-glittery.
