I’m In Love With Little Humphrey!

100_1530
Happy Saturday!!  I’ve been playing in my craft room again, and having a little miniature love affair with the Humphrey line of stamps at Crafter’s Companion.  This gorgeous little girl is from their Just For You stamp set.  She’s a sweet little doll and I’ve had so much fun coloring her!  Thanks, AJ!!!
So, I hear all over the blogosphere that we don’t ever make mistakes in paper crafting, we just have happy accidents!  Well, I had a big happy accident with this card!  I had completely finished coloring her…couldn’t leave well enough alone, and was adding some extra stuff.  I ended up smearing black ink all over her and the white background paper that she was stamped on.  Ugh…faceplant.  I was able to get the ink off of her, but not off the background paper…so time to do some serious fussy cutting (I won’t use the word hate, but…well…yes I will.  I HATE fussy cutting!!!)  I really liked her on the white background, but when I put the cut out pic on the white again, it wasn’t great.  So here’s what I decided to do instead:

I used white cardstock and a pale pink organza ribbon to basket weave a background!  I wish it would show up a little better on the photograph.  I know it would have if I had weaved together two different colors of ribbon, but I didn’t want to distract from the cute little girl.  So, I popped her up on her new background, used a Martha Stewart punch for the grey portion of the background, and there you have it!
She is my third and final entry for the Crafter’s Companion Challenge Blog.  Go check them out…they have a GREAT prize this month!!
