Thrusday's up! - All Smiles

All Smiles

365cards challenge this week is to feature an image on your card that depicts a great big smile. Well, I must confess I do not have any big circle punch yet(one and only 7/8" punch is way too small) and I spoilt the circle cutter that I have. So I took a roll of tape and traced, cut and halved it. This should pass as a big smile on a small 4x6 card :) I left the SMILE with no stamps/pattern or any sort of decoration because I wanted to keep the rest of the items in the card BUSY. I had always wanted to try this, to create a background using corrugated cardboard with inks. It took me awhile to tear out the cardboard for the texture to appear, snipped a little with scissors and trimmed a little with pen knife. Then I whopped out 2 colors and just dabbed the ink pads on the cardboard. Anyway I'm happy and I do like the outcome as the card isn't the girly girl kind of card.
Supplies :
* Corrugated cardboard box
* Black and white cardstock
* White pigment ink pen from Uniball Signo Broad - for the eyes
* Tim Holtz distress inks - Bundled Sage / Walnut Stain
* Authenthique Blissful 6x6pad - Paradise paper
* Washi tapes from Amy Tangerine and MT Kamoi Tape
* Maya Road canvas button
* Stamped Ticket from RAK - with my handwritten SMILE
* My Mind's Eye 6x6 Designer Paper Pad Out of the Blue - Heart shape cut out
