Never look back...


A dear friend of mine, Cindy Motherway (Mothermark on SCS) collaborated with H&M Stamps to come up with a fun stamp set. Now, Cindy is a goofball!! (That's why I love her so much.) So, that's why all of the images in this set are back-ends of animals with clever sayings to go with them. The set is called "A Lil' Behind". There are 23 fabulous images and sentiments in this set. Too, too fun!!

Now, SCS's Ways to use it challenge today, is to get creative with a white gel pen. I love my Inkssentials pen, so I stamped this fun cow on Kraft cardstock with Tuxedo Black (Memento) ink. I then colored it with my gel pen and copics. I was actually able to shade the white edges with my C-3 Cool gray copic. It colored right over the gel pen. The dots on the side are just punched Suede Dark Brown cs circles ink distressed with Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress Ink) to give them a bit of depth. Each panel is inked distressed with the Brushed Corduroy also.

Supplies:
Stamps - A Lil' Behind (H&M stamps)
Paper - Tawny Medium, Herbal Garden Medium (Prismatics), Going Gray, Kraft and Black (Stampin' Up)
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento), Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress Ink)
Accessories - Tag corner (Stampin' Up), Hole punch, Copics, White gel pen (Inkssentials), sponge

Tosh! I love this card. It's a kick! How appropriate that you would use the cow butt for the first card you make using this set! Only you could make a cows butt loook so good! Snort!

I get the feeling you are gonna use this one alot in the future for all of your surrounding cow people! Giggle!

Thanks so much....oh yeah..how wonderful that gel pen worked for this! Awesome and fun card.

And don't call me goofy!
