I have been reading the challenges for a bit on splitcoaststampers but haven't actually gotten up the courage to try one until today. Todays technique challenge was to make a suspension card. Something I have wanted to try for awhile now. And I had the perfect stamp to try it with...the new Inkadinkadoo psychologist/chocolate stamp. I could picture him spinning round in round in circles in his rolling chair as he listened to his patient. I stamped a mirror image of the stamp so that the image could be seen on both sides when spun. Once I finished the basics of the card it just seemed to be missing something. I had an idea!
me: What did you do with the wrapper to your Hershey bar from yesterday?
DS #1: ummmm.......
me: Do you know if you threw it out?
DS #1: why?
DS #2: (always eager to rat out his big brother and get him in trouble) OH YEAH!!!! He dropped a piece of chocolate on the car seat of your car!!!
oh well, never did find that Hershey wrapper. I have a sneaking suspicion that it will show up in the wash later. Instead I had to settle for a tootsie roll to create the flower center with. I simply adhered a wrapper to the front of a Heidi Swapp large brad, tucked the edges underneath and stuck it in the middle of the flower.
