In this week's episode of Hambo Hoedown, I once again messed up and needed a do-over. Sigh. Last week's players got this cute "Bird Hero - digi" image:
... and this sketch:
Here is my "real" card:
This uses some Basic Grey wander papers. I thought they were PERFECT for a hero card, since they resemble city streets, and I immediately thought of our Men In Blue, like these:
Okay, these are firemen, not policemen, but they are wearing blue, and, um, did you notice I called this photo "eye candy"? Mmmm-hmmm. Not complaining. I sure hope they stop back this summer - it was a very pleasant diversion from all those boring vegetables... just sayin'.
So anyway, what was I talking about? Oh, yeah, the sketch. That card above is my official entry for this week's Hambo Hoedown. I colored the bird grey, since I was thinking city birds = pigeons, and pigeons are a dirty grey. Then, of course, I got to the beak and realized - DOH! This isn't a pigeon! Sigh, I need a keeper. But I *did* enhance the "hero" medal by embossing it so it's shiny. :)
Now I'll show you what I made first... before I remembered it was a sketch:
I liked these BG euphoria papers - thought they looked like fireworks. AND, I was so excited to use some small pieces of papers I had left from the last time I used these papers ... that's when I remembered it was a sketch. But hey, I still made two more cards than I needed to, am I right?
In other news, I posted earlier today with three of the VSN cards I made last night. Before I make any more, I plan to work on my card for this week's Jingle Belles Rock challenge. I'll get started on that one as soon as I find a special single piece of paper in my stash. Uh-huh. Just one very special piece I know is in there, somewhere. Oh yeah, I'm busy, busy, busy. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
