Chewable Aspirin

Another Football Frenzy card for challenge #96 at House Mouse & Friends.

This was actually the first image I stamped to go with the acrylic distress background on yesterday’s card, but right in the middle of making yesterday’s card a new idea popped into my head and I switched images.

The main image for today’s card is a HM stamp called Chewable Aspirin. It was stamped on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Prismacolored pencils, then cut out. I added stickles to the ice cube and drips. The aspirin bottle cotton is a combination of two MS flocking powders (swan & pewter). The eyes were colored with a black glaze pen, and one dotted with a white gel pen, then laid aside to dry.

I started looking for sentiments to go with this image, and that is when the switcheroo of images came about, and when yesterday’s card came about.

The sentiment is from a SU set called Always In My Thoughts, stamped on white with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then punched out with a circle punch. I decided to specify even more, so I chose the SU set Alphabits, stamped on white with Memento Tuxedo Black, then punched each letter out with a 1/4” hole punch. For this Faux Sympathy card I used Steeler colors (black, gold & white).

The footballs are from a CDS set call Accessory Fun, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and sponged with Vintage Photo Distress, cut out, and placed in each corner.

My Raven fan husband loved this card, it even got a chuckle out of him. I am back in non-stamping land now, and I am having withdrawal. I can’t wait to get back to my stamps.

Thanks for stopping by, and I really enjoy the comments.

Happy Stamping!
