Kiss Kiss

It's Saturday, and I think I'm going to be able to spend most of the day in TM, that is provided I don't spend most of the morning on the internet. So, since it's the weekend, and I really have a lot to get done with OWH cards, let's get straight to the reason you're here.

The first time I saw this image was in the Tiddly Inks Etsy shop right after Christy had started her PCP group. It was a colored image(Christy uncolored them when she added them to the store), but I fell in love with her. Her name is Smoochie and isn't she the cutest cow you ever saw? The only coloring was to her lips and her bow, so perfect for fast multiples, and of course she's colored with Copics. I stickled her bow, added a thick coat of Alene's Paper Glaze to her lips and the bow and some googly eyes with lashes to give her a little more personality. The reason for the glaze over the stickles is glitter is a no-no on OWH cards. Glitter tends to come off and stick to you. Since it sparkles, it's like a neon sign when you're trying not to be seen by the enemy. The paper is some I made in PSE and believe me, I'm on the low end of the learning curve in PSE. I do like the way it turned out and I printed it on the cardstock, for the card base. It took forever, and then I accidentally deleted trying to get rid of my failed attempts. The Word Art is some I created in PSE(the one thing I have figured out at the most basic level).
Thanks for stopping by and hope your day is as productive as I hope mine is going to be.


  1. Shirley,
    These are adorable! I am working on some Halloween cards for OWH, hoping to get them done today but we shall see how that goes! I think my goal is to get a set of 8 done every week, I figured it out and that's a little over 400 cards a year!
    Thanks for sharing and have a great day at Tazmania today!

  2. Too cute - I adore the googly eyes and eyelashes!!
