What's Up?....

Besides your age!


That is what I am gonna write inside UPHOUSE! I'm killing myself laughing here! You know, when you get to be my age all cards given or received seem to have something to do with getting old and as soon as I saw UPHOUSE I knew exactly what I would write inside to pair up with the what's up sentiment that comes with the image. I think it is hilarious! I'm still laughing! I love good clean stupid humor about aging. And I really don't mind getting older myself because it gives me a good excuse for soooo many things....aches, pains, memory loss, weight name it. I can somehow tie it in to getting older. LOL!

If you aren't quite as old as I am, or don't want to remind someone how old they are this image would also work very well with the Oh the places you will go sentiment. Yes, I have kids going off to school on my mind. I have a couple other ideas in my head and just may shoot Paula an email to get working on some more sentiments for us!

The image was stamped on Bella's Bestest Paper and colored with copics. The blue sky and faint grass blades were done with prisma color pencils. I also used a sponge dauber and green ink to add some extra shading on the bottom. Ranger Glossy Accents were added to a few of the balloons and some clear glaze pen to the windows. Oh glaze pen EXPLODED ON ME! YIKES...I knew I should have bought some reserves when I was at Stamping Bella last weekend!
copics used in no particular order:
YR0000, 00, 02
BG0000, 000, 11, 13, 01, 18, 07
YG0000, 21, 13
R81, 83, 85, 59
E21, 33, 37, 47, 49
W1, 5, 7

Now don't forget to play along with Bellarific Friday. We have worked one of our newest babes Meahni to the bone and she has come up with another incredible sketch for us this week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Your colouring blows me away. I always look forward to seeing your new work--it's the high point of my day.

What we tend to forget is what the actual size of some of these images do such amazing shading in such a small amount of space it blows me away! You seriously rock, thanks for sharing your talent!

BTW, love the sentiment...hilarious!

I have to say I wasn't very fond of this stamp when I first saw it on the Bella site. WOW! Did you ever show it in a different light! It is now on my wish list. What a great card. Absolutely love your colouring.

Oh my god that is the most hilarious thing I've heard all week! I'm still laughing (and getting strange looks from my coworkers). I'm sorry but I'm going to have to case that line for a birthday card for my mom.

Beautiful card as always. But seriously the commentary is what made me *have* to comment.
