No Bones About It - It's Godzilla!

by Joanne James13. July 2015 09:06

Well, it's pouring down with rain here in the UK this morning but it can't dampen my spirits: we are counting down toward the end of term and the school holidays, in addition to which I have the most fun card to share with you today! I used Linda's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches as my inspiration this week:

Now I changed the orientation for my card to landscape because I had this great idea for my new 'No Bones About It' stamp set and this sketch was perfect for trying it out - check out today's card: 

Is it a T-Rex? Is it a Stegasaurus? No, it's that all-time King of the Monsters - Godzilla! Whilst this card is quite simple in its final execution, it took several aborted attempts and absolutely ages to get right but I love it! I stamped the cityscape from the 'Calling All Heroes' stamp set in Memento Black directly onto my extra thick Whisper White card base (this set is not available in the UK but I am fortunate to own it due to the generosity of one of my American stamping buddies -thank you LeAnne!), then masked it off and stamped the sunburst stamp from the now retired 'So You' stamp set twice in Watermelon Wonder behind it. I partially inked the sentiment from the 'No Bones About It' in black and set it inside one of the action bubbles from the 'Calling All Heroes' set stamped in Crushed Curry and popped this up on a dimensional. Then for my Godzilla - I stamped the solid t-rex stamp from No Bones About It in Mossy Meadow and then inked the back plates only of the stegosaurus stamp and overlaid them along the t-rex's spine. I then fussy-cut the whole thing and added it to my city scene - simple! A simple sentiment and a black baker's twine bow and done - the perfect card for a nostalgic movie buff! What do think? I'd love to hear your views on my card today - did I successfully create a monster?

That's all from me today - I have a day of biscuit icing ahead of me - many apples in readiness for teacher's gifts this week. At least the cooler weather should prevent everything sliding into a sticky mess!

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!
