Los Tres Caballeros

Hello and happy Sunday. I can officially report that Summer has now arrived, and so instead of complaining about the rain, we Brits are now complaining about the heat. If we think it's too hot for us, think how these poor guys must be feeling!



Over on the Portal To Creativity we have a postcard challenge which my caballeros were eager to enter.


I started with my 6x4 piece of glossy card, which is the number one rule for postcards. The 6x4 bit - non glossy is also ok. I inked through my stencil with Stazon inks in yellow through to red.


Next I stamped my noble gentleman (Skull Flourish) and embossed him with black EP. Then I stamped him again on a post it note (other sticky backed pieces of paper are available) and masked him. I have to admit masking doesn't really float my boat, but needs must!


Woah now there's 3 of 'em! My lead caballero, although very handsome in orange, wasn't really standing out enough so he was stamped again in white and layered up.


I still needed some words, so I used the ones from Tres Caballeros, and for a while it was all done. But then I got around to thinking, what if....


The whole world looks better through googly eyes!
So please join in with the fun, you don't need to use Lost Coast or Carmen's Veranda stamps, but of course we love it when you do.
Have a fun day, and Happy Father's Day to those who are cellebrating today xx

  2. Oh this is funny! I love it. Kentucky is HOT and HUMID in the summer, and this year summer came really early. Thanks for this humorous take on the summer's heat. It lightened my day!
