Dancing Fools

Dancing Fools - by karen @ carefree creations

I feel like I’m finally getting into a groove with my schedule. And I’m enjoying stamping again (which is a good thing considering….)!!

I started this card last night for the CASual Fridays #143 theme challenge of Music. I tried to work in a sketch but it just wasn’t taking, so I slept on it – and came up with a fun idea.

I’m so stoked with how this turned out! I’ve loved seeing cards that use outline images just as they are – no coloring (like the ones … man, I thought it was Susan Raihala that did the post, but now I can’t find it and I’m so far behind in my blog reading that it could have been posted weeks ago….does any one remember the post I’m talking about??? UPDATE: I found it!! Maureen Merritt is the one posting tips for line stamping.).

Anyway, I have loads of non-colored image cards in my inspiration file and I finally found a way to do it without copying someone else! Seriously, this makes me happy!

I did decide that I need to get a few different sizes of googly eyes for my stash – these images are drawn with different sized eyeballs and I would have loved to carry that through with the googly eyes.

OK, I gotta get or I’ll be late for work.

Thanks for taking a peek!
